Bitcoin Donations with the Human Trafficking Institute2 min readReading Time: 2 minutes
The Human Trafficking Institute, founded in 2015, is a non-profit organization that focuses on decimating human trafficking at its source by empowering law enforcement and prosecutors around the world to stop human traffickers. Working inside the justice systems, the institute provides expertise, world-class training, investigative resources, and evidence-based research necessary to empower those fighting human trafficking. OpenNode is proud to partner with the Human Trafficking Institute to make it possible to support its fight against human trafficking with Bitcoin donations.
The Human Trafficking Institute provides resources and tools for combatting human trafficking. Their website features content in trending human trafficking cases and articles, as well as a robust resource section that showcases reports from the three branches of the US government, Non-US Governments, Multi-Lateral Organizations, and non-governmental organizations.
“HTI is extremely excited to be working with Openode to accept Bitcoin donations. Human Trafficking is a global issue and at HTI we are working to stop trafficking at its source – the trafficker. We help police and prosecutors in our Partner Countries embed experts inside justice systems to help stop traffickers and protect victims. Each trafficker stopped sends a message to other traffickers that their crime is not worth the risk. In this year alone, we’ve already seen 506 victims protected and 355 traffickers arrested in our Partner Countries. That’s more traffickers stopped than in the previous ten years before our programs started. Our Partner Countries are stopping traffickers and protecting victims like never before, and we’re just getting started. But we can’t do this work alone – we need support from this community. Learn more about our work at traffickinginstitute.org and join us in this fight to stop traffickers. Together, we can bring tangible hope to victims today.”Victor Boutros, Founder and CEO of the Human Trafficking Institute
