No one should have to face the life of suffering that these children endure.
Become a part of rescuing and restoring those who have endured the unthinkable.
Addiction and poverty are at the root of human trafficking. Addiction drives poverty, poverty drives desperation, and desperation leads to unthinkable crime. 88% of children are trafficked by their families. That is why we not only rescue those being trafficked, but we address the problem from the source by running a drug rehab and discipleship within the local communities. Because when people encounter the love of Jesus, they receive true healing and restoration.
POVERTY + CORRUPTION = HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Mexico ranks second in the world for child prostitution.
Many cities allow prostitution, making Mexico the largest destination for sex tourists from the United States.
Over 70,000 children are kidnapped each year.
Most are exploited for prostitution, pornography, or illegal adoption trafficking.
And that is why we are here, to work with both Mexican and international authorities to help stop child sex trafficking and rescue as many as we can, daily, from it’s deadly grip.
Rehabbed After Overdose
I arrived because of an overdose at Agoge Village Rehabilitation Center. The staff quickly attended to me, and together with paramedics they stabilized me. I can’t tell you how hard those days were. I remember listening to the fervent prayers of the Agoge trainers, even normal breathing was difficult for awhile because of the damage from the meth.
I accepted Christ, and I repented of my sins, I really wanted to be baptized and God allowed me to do it in this beautiful place (Agoge Puebla). I have shared what I have learned with my family, and we have made a promise that when I leave here we will go to the local church together.
Rehabbed Man - Baptism Feb 2024
Up until my youth I had a normal upbringing. One day I began to make a lot of bad decisions, and this caused a lot of suffering and hard times. Because of drug addiction I eventually ended up in prison.
After reaching out to find help I was able to discover Agoge Village Rehab, where I met Christ my Savior and asked forgiveness for all of my sins. Today I feel free and with other cadets, we are undertaking a furniture manufacturing workshop together. I have heard God's call on my life and now my prayer is that my family and brothers also come and know Christ Jesus!
WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
People all over Mexico are being trafficked and abused. They are victims of the drug trade and alcoholism, and the poor, marginalized descendants of the indigenous are especially vulnerable and unreached by discipleship.
We have been relentlessly serving this community since the 1980s. We rescue hundreds of children from human trafficking. We have cared for over 750 children since 2004. We place them in a loving home, protecting, educating, and reintegrating them into society as adults. We rehabilitate hundreds of men and boys from substance abuse to stop the abusive cycle. We go to the poor and marginalized, discipling through house churches and street ministries.
Because when we do what it takes to rescue and restore children who have been trafficked, we can restore a nation.

We know how heartbreaking it is to feel helpless in the face of injustice.
“Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless;
maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.”
maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.”
Together, we can rescue and restore trafficked children.
As believers in Jesus, our hearts break at the injustices around us. But it can be so hard to know how to make a tangible impact - how to not only rescue children who have been borne into a life of sex slavery, but to care for them and love them to restoration and healing.
Let us be your hands and feet. We have connections, favor with the authorities, private detectives, and trauma counselors. What we need are the finances to fund rescues, provide education, and pay for doctor’s visits. Without the generosity of the church, our mission is impossible.
