Who We Are
Justice Ventures International (JVI) is a global human rights organization that secures freedom, justice and restoration for the poor and oppressed by strengthening ventures that promote justice.
JVI is committed to eradicating modern day slavery, empowering poor families living in slums, and ensuring justice for other vulnerable groups in India, China and Nepal.
Where We Work
We believe that justice is sustainable only if it is embraced and led by individuals in the communities where injustices occur. We collaborate with local partners in the field by rescuing victims of sex-trafficking, bonded slavery, and other forms of forced labor. We identify and provide vital after-care services for survivors. We deliver high quality legal and related services in partnership with community-based organizations to support the victims and prosecute the traffickers.
Of the over 45 million* people currently enslaved in the world, nearly 18 million men, women and children are suffering in India alone. In partnership with local organizations, JVI and has been involved in rescuing victims of sex trafficking and bonded labor, as well as conducting human rights training, performing rights-based advocacy, and supporting businesses that employ and provide after-care services to survivors of trafficking.
There are an estimated 200+ million* migrants immigrants from rural areas flooding China’s cities in pursuit of better employment opportunities. Migrants are particularly vulnerable to human trafficking. JVI is working to increase the impact of justice ventures that bring freedom to men, women and children who are victims of abuse and oppression. We are involved with local partners to provide legal services and human rights training, and proudly partner with the Starfish Project to bring vital services to women who have broken free from injustice.
JVI’s expansion of services to Nepal occurred as a result of the recent devastating massive earthquake, which further increased the vulnerability of Nepal’s poorest citizens to human trafficking. JVI is launching a new initiative, the Nepal Freedom Project (Bonded Labor), which seeks to provide advocacy, trainings and public interest litigation to secure freedom, justice and restoration for bonded laborers.
