Compassion First

Unverified non-profit organisation

Compassion First is a Christian relief and development organization that provides end-to-end, personalized care to those rescued from or at risk of sex trafficking and exploitation in Indonesia, with operations in North Sulawesi, West Java and East Java. We do this in four ways:

Personalized, Trauma-Informed Care
We provide personalized care for child survivors of sex trafficking, building resilience to overcome trauma through education, medical care, counseling, & life-skills training.

Legal Advocacy
When girls in our care are asked to testify against their trafficker, we provide a legal team and staff to advocate for her in a safe court environment.

Strategic Collaboration with Law Enforcement
We collaborate with local law enforcement by providing funding for legal rescues and case management for police, families, and rescued girls.

Prevention through Community Development
Through educational sponsorships, entrepreneurial opportunities, and community classes, we prevent vulnerable children from being trafficked.
