Our Response to "The Sound of Freedom"

The movie The Sound of Freedom is a record-breaking box office success, bringing the plight of child trafficking around the world into every community! While the film does an excellent job showing one type of trafficking in one part of the world, the reality is that across the US, and even globally, children are being sold every day.

As people leave the theater, the number one question being asked is this: “what happens to children who escape?” I’m proud to share that for 13 years Courage Worldwide has been providing residential treatment for children who escape trafficking.

Many of you have supported us from the beginning—when you, too, were struck by the idea of children being sold for sex in our own backyards in the US. We are excited to announce that we are working with the State of Nevada to open Courage House in this state beginning in 2024.

Throughout our history, our faithful donors have partnered with Courage Worldwide and supported our growth, from California to East Africa. With our expansion efforts, we need you now more than ever!

  • The truth about human trafficking is—there are millions of victims of globally. This problem is immense, but we are determined to change the world one individual at a time.

  • Our program offers safety, love, and comprehensive resources so that each girl can experience hope and healing. 80% of the girls never return to trafficking and many go on to reach educational success as well as achieve personal goals.

  • Our vision is big for Nevada and East Africa—our donors have been the bedrock of our homes as staff, volunteers, and passionate advocates. We couldn’t have done it without their (your!) support.

The movie The Sound of Freedom has successfully highlighted an evil that we at Courage Worldwide have been fighting for the past 18 years. While we are thrilled that a light has been shined into this darkness, we can’t stop there.

These children need a home, a safe place to heal and resources to be and do all they dream of doing.

Will you help us do just that?
