“The trajectories of girls and women in the sex trade are often marked by many on-ramps into exploitation—poverty, violence, discrimination and system failure—and few exit ramps for girls and women who seek to leave. The NoVo Foundation learned about these often unseen realities from those who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation (CSE), over years of listening and partnership. A year ago, we launched The Life Story: Moments of Change to illuminate these truths, lifting up the voices, experiences and insights of survivors.
This year, we are deepening our support to organizations who are changing those life trajectories. Specifically, we are seeking to fund system-focused strategies that help close on-ramps into commercial sexual exploitation while building many more exit ramps. To that end, we are pleased to announce a call for Letters of Inquiry for The Life Story Grants: a $10 million, 3-year commitment for programs in the U.S that open exit ramps and close on-ramps to commercial sexual exploitation.”
