2016 fundraising

 

10% of all profits made through Flame Guitars is donated to organisations that campaign and work for justice in the developing world. As was the case for 2015 I will  again in 2016 be supporting two organisations; these being Five14 and the International Justice Mission.

Five 14
Five14 are based in Nepal and was started a couple of years ago by friends of mine, Sally and Yagya Singh. They offer adventure tourism trips but with an opportunity to take part in a development project. A major part of their work relates to human trafficking, particularly the trafficking of young girls into sexual slavery. Girls between the ages of five and fourteen are most vulnerable to being sold into slavery; hence the name Five14.

International Justice Mission
International Justice Mission is a human rights organisation that works to secure justice for victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. IJM lawyers work with local agencies to rescue victims and provide aftercare. This short video gives overview of the the work of IJM.
