Climb for Captives is a community of people who use the outdoors to raise awareness and support for the fight against human trafficking.  We call it adventure philanthropy.

Since 2008 we’ve been climbing mountains to rescue women and children from slavery. For each climb we partner with a non-profit that is working to bring freedom to victims of human trafficking and we give them 100% of the money we raise so that they can rescue as many as possible.

Rescue:Freedom International exists to empower the rescue and restoration of those suffering in sexual slavery and human trafficking. Rescue:Freedom works around the world with local partners who are responding to the unique needs in their communities to ensure that rescued women and children receive the care they need experience lasting freedom and true restoration.

In central India there is a home of hope for 44 rescued teenage girls. It is a home that the Climb for Captives team has been hearing about for some time and is particularly excited to partner with. Several months ago, climber Jeremy Vallerand was visiting the home and was deeply impacted by a conversation with a young 15 year old girl. Her mother was trafficked from Nepal before she was born and she was born into a brothel. Thankfully, the Rescue:Freedom partners there where able to get her out of the brothel and into the home before she was trafficked to another city. Shortly after, her mother passed away in the brothel, leaving her with no known living family members. As Jeremy prepared to leave, the girls asked him to promise that he would return to visit again. Not wanting to make a promise he wasn’t sure he could keep, Jeremy told the young girl that he would try very hard to come back soon, but could not promise when he would be able to. The mothers daygirl looked at him, pondered, and then thought of a new question. “Do you promise that you will remember me?” Jeremy was prepared to make that promise!

This climb is part of that promise. It’s a declaration that “WE REMEMBER.” It is a commitment that we will not forget those who are suffering in slavery and exploitation, those who do not enjoy the freedom we so easily take for grantid.
