The Driving Force

This blog has come about because of a deep desire to make a difference in the lives of girls who are trafficked into the sex slave industry around the world. We are about raising awareness of the shocking figures and statistics which show slavery is on the increase and is now more prevelant than ever in our history. It is too easy to be put off by the huge numbers (1.4 million girls and women, 27 million slaves) but we are putting our hand up to do all we can to support those who are stepping out and making a difference! We will be holding get-togethers, cocktail evenings, silent auctions and other fundraising events to both raise awareness and funds. Please join us! It starts with one step...
