When we say, “MAP helps people prevent modern slavery in Michigan and beyond“ – we mean it! To help you prevent slavery beyond Michigan we have partnered with Compassion International.
One way that you can prevent slavery is by sponsoring a child in the Dominican Republic.
Why the Dominican Republic?
Child sex tourism is an increasing problem in the Dominican Republic, with child sex tourists arriving year-round from the United States and Europe (TIP Report, 2012.) Due to the country being a vacation hot-spot for Michigan residents, it’s proximity to the U.S., and the significant number of people trapped in the sex industry – we have chosen the Dominican Republic to focus on at this time. However, if you feel led to sponsor a child in a different location – we certainly encourage you to do so. It is our hope that every child around the world will receive access to education and basic needs, as all of humanity deserves.
