Beneficiary Introductions :: International Justice Mission

We are thrilled to share the next beneficiary of Kershaw's Challenge - International Justice Mission. Our focus for IJM will be in the Dominican Republic office to help fund their rescue and restore efforts. Clayton first visited the DR several years ago and knew we had to get involved.


IJM’s mission is to protect the poor from violence by rescuing victims, bringing criminals to justice, restoring survivors to safety and strength, and helping local law enforcement build a safe future that lasts. They are doing remarkable work of rescuing and restoring children trapped in sex slavery in the DR. Specifically, our contribution would allow for the rescue of 9 boys and girls, restore 18 survivors, restrain 13 suspects, and secure the convictions of 13 traffickers. Our support would also fund the reform program to improve aftercare services and enhance investigations.

Our team had the awesome privilege of traveling with IJM to the Dominican Republic over the off-season. Truly, their efforts are dramatically changing lives and we witnessed first hand that our support deeply matters. Until all are free from exploitation, we have a role to play. IJM is doing the remarkable work of rescuing and restoring children trapped in sex slavery in the DR.
