About us

The TRIBE Freedom Foundation is a registered charity established by the TRIBE community to raise funds to fight modern slavery and end human trafficking.

The TRIBE Freedom Foundation is a UK registered charity (no. 1172251) established by the three Co-Founders of TRIBE (UK registered company: Everyday Adventures Ltd, no. 09286289) on 24 March 2017 on behalf of the TRIBE community to raise funds to fight modern slavery and end human trafficking.

In 2018, our fundraising target is £100,000 to support two outstanding font line anti-slavery projects:

Ella’s Home: an East-London safe-house providing rehabilitation, accommodation, and support for women exiting situations of trafficking and exploitation. In partnership with Luminary Bakery, they also offer training and employment opportunities, helping survivor’s to regain independence.

Snowdrop Project: a Sheffield-based charity and one of the first in the UK to provide long-term follow-on support for survivors. They work with clients on an individual basis to ensure their personal and complex needs are met.

Our purposes are:

  1. Disruption and Prevention of modern slavery through raising awareness and supporting education of the underlying causes of modern slavery and highlighting potential solutions for these problems.
  2. Rehabilitation and Support for the victims of human trafficking and abuses of human rights, including through the provision of safe accommodation, medical care, financial support and counselling, so they can rebuild their lives.
