To prevent the trafficking and oppression of vulnerable children and women and empower them to be changemakers in their communities.

About us

Lift Up the Vulnerable (LUV) is an ecumenical Christian mission organization that prevents the trafficking and oppression of vulnerable children and women in warzones.

In conflict zones such as Sudan and South Sudan, which are marked by violence and extreme poverty, the most vulnerable are kidnapped as child soldiers, sold as sex slaves, and trapped in forced labor. 

Holistic Empowerment Model

Our solution is a holistic model that prevents trafficking and empowers children and women to thrive as change agents in their own lives and communities. Since 2005, our leaders have a proven track record of effectively navigating and building partnerships in warzones and lawless lands.


Through the only indigenously directed anti-human trafficking network spanning Sudan and South Sudan, LUV provides protection, education, and economic development to eliminate the exploitation of vulnerabilities, provide freedom, and restore hope. We envision a world where vulnerable children and women are empowered and, through them, war-torn nations are transformed.
