What is 50 FOR 50?
By the numbers
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.Margaret Mead
Often we overlook children in poverty. They are too small, their rights are often unprotected. But God makes it clear that poor children require our urgent attention. That’s because poverty is an instrument of the enemy attacking a child’s self-esteem, family and future. But poverty doesn’t have to win.
From the United States, Aaron’s Hands serves as a support to a ministry (which must remain anonymous for the safety of those involved) which has provided over 1.5 million glasses of milk for thousands of children trapped in poverty in the slums of New Delhi, India. Every day 2,500 children are provided with a glass of milk. We have seen their lives changed forever.
Nutrition, health care, eduction and the gospel are weapons against poverty. Nurture a child and the effect of poverty goes away.
The A21 Campaign
When confronted with the horrific statistics surrounding human trafficking, it is easy to agree on the fact that “someone should do something.” In 2007, A21 recognized the need to be that “someone” and committed to combat the injustice of human trafficking through rescuing one life at a time. After extensive research, planning, fundraising, more research, and relationship building, we opened our first shelter for survivors of human trafficking at the end of 2008 in Thessaloniki, Greece.
Simply put, A21 exists to abolish injustice in the 21st century through a comprehensive system achieving preventative measures to help potential victims evade trafficking, victim protection through our shelters and aftercare program, prosecution of violators, and strategic partnerships.
A21 stands for abolishing injustice in the 21st century. Anyone can join; everyone can make a difference.

The buffalo is the symbol for Justice Ministries, because buffalo naturally defend and protect the females and the young in the herd by forming a perimeter around them when predators approach. At Justice Ministries, we want to provide a safe place for survivors of human trafficking.
