The Demand Project - Directs their efforts, resources and energy toward the prevention of sexual exploitation, with an emphasis on the sexual exploitation of children, works with local authorities to support prosecution, participates in the rescue of victims, and provides  restoration resources. Whether they’re victims of trafficking, forced prostitution, online enticement or child pornography—their mission is to end all sex crimes by targeting the DEMAND side of sexual exploitation.  This ministry also highlighted some critical questions when engaging possible victims by asking the following questions that we want to share:
  • Are any of your basic needs withheld?
  • Have you been physically threatened?
  • Has a family member been threatened?
  • Who determines your daily / nightly schedule?
  • Is anyone withholding documents from you, e.g. passport, driver’s license, etc.?
  • Are you provided drugs or alcohol?
  • Have you had a forced abortion or abortions?
  • With whom do you live?
  • Are you in school?
  • From where does your money come? Do you have a bank account?
