Preventative Programs


It is our belief that education is the key to stop the demand and prevent human trafficking.

When we are not actively rescuing or interacting with survivors, the Rahab’s Daughters team is in the community providing education about human trafficking. Our founders, Sharmila (Sam) Wijeyakumar and Dr. Rev. Denardo Ramos, offer several trainings and keynote talks that can shed light on the complex world of human trafficking.
