On May 1, The Huffington Post published “Making Children Count” by Jesse Eaves, Senior Policy Advisor for Child Protection at World Vision, an ATEST member.

The Alliance to End Slavery and Trafficking (ATEST) is a U.S. based coalition that advocates for solutions to prevent and end all forms of human trafficking and modern slavery around the world.
