Project iRISE is a survivor-led, community-based nonprofit organization with a mission to educate and empower survivors of human trafficking and those at risk.

What We Do

"I founded Project iRISE in 2020 with the belief that survivors of human trafficking should be given every opportunity to succeed in life. But faced with multiple challenges, this is often next to impossible to achieve without help. That's why Project iRISE aims to support survivors to make this vision a reality."
