We believe in the value of every human life, and that no human being should be subjected to atrocities in the name of tradition, culture, law, religion, or as a result of poverty. We believe it is our global responsibility to grant human rights to all peoples, in every corner of the world. We believe in the right to live in peace and the right to be educated and that these rights should never be denied to any human being based on gender, culture, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation/identity or social class.

We believe that empowering women and girls can shift the entire universe and help eradicate poverty, illiteracy and violence and that the untapped talent and power of women can bring the world infinite peace and wealth. We believe that putting responsibility into the hands of women can change the world, and that healthy and empowered mothers raise healthy and empowered children.

We believe that every human being, man, woman or gender non-binary, has the capacity to contribute to this world in a profound and positive way and that each of us deserves that opportunity.

We believe in service and helping our neighbours, whether they be next door or overseas. The globalization of the world no longer permits us to remain ignorant to international issues; these issues are our own and taking responsibility for them is the most beautiful and just thing we can do as a human race.

We believe in good old-fashioned SHARING and that in a world of abundance, there should be no child who must work in unspeakable conditions to support their family and no child who should have to die from hunger or disease as a result of poverty.

We believe in respecting and young women and girls and that their bodies are exclusively theirs and that

NO HUMAN BEING HAS THE RIGHT TO MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT THE BODIES OF WOMEN AND GIRLS.

We believe in the innate goodness of humanity, and that education, compassion and service is the way to achieve greatness. We will promote our values through loving education, the most powerful tool there is.

Aura Freedom is an LGBTQI2S+ positive space.

It is important to note that Aura Freedom does not participate in “rescue industry” activities. We meet survivors where they are, recognizing their diverse backgrounds, stories, and choices. We also refute the patriarchal 'victim narrative' that has a limited view of what trafficking and trafficked persons look like.
