Who We Are

shivafou_whoweareWe are a corporate foundation and in the process of registering as an independent UK-based charity who acts as a catalyst in transforming the way in which we promote and protect individual freedoms and ensure that everyone can pursue their aspirations. We seek to do this by creating long-term systemic change through awareness raising, advocacy and capacity-building, specifically in relation to human trafficking and forced labour.

Our corporate partners, Shiva Hotels, have provided us with continued support since 2012 which has enabled us to focus all of our efforts on creating social change and building dynamic partnerships.

Our Values

We are driven by a strong set of values that we uphold as an organisation and share with our partners. These include integrity, openness and trust in people as well as the following three key methods of working which are core to everything we do:

Collaboration

We know that working together is the most efficient way to create real change. By sharing our knowledge and expertise we ensure new ideas and best practice are spread more quickly.

Progressive Approach

We do more than raise awareness of the issue. We ensure that every action we take makes a tangible difference. The way in which we achieve our outcomes is as important to us as the outcome itself.

Systemic change

We recognise that real change takes time, commitment and collaboration. We are flexible in our approach and ready to evolve as the context around human rights shifts, in order to create significant and long-term, systemic change.
