85 – Prevention that Empowers – A Biblical Best Practice Model

In Episode 85, Dr. Sandra Morgan and Dave Stachowiak discuss one of the oldest prevention stories available to us – 2 Kings 4:1-7 (NLT). In this story, a mother of two young boys works to prevent her boys from being taken as slaves. The woman asks for help and begins taking steps to ensure her boys stay in her care. With the help of community involvement, the mother gains a sense of dignity and a way to provide for her children. Sandra and Dave discuss the importance of looking not only at the faces of those being trafficked but of those who are responsible for providing and protecting these children. Prevention strategies begin when we empower the mothers of children at risk. They look at the power of starting with just a few small steps that fit the community and culture and how it can cultivate sustainable prevention strategies. This podcast poses significant questions such as:

Where is the front line to end human trafficking?

How can you prevent trafficking in your community?

Empowerment and prevention come hand in hand, how does that effect the way you strategize in the fight to end trafficking?
