Emerge Worldwide is a humanitarian organisation that helps those suffering trauma, on the run, and who are victims of sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. We are based in Croydon and made up of volunteers and professionals from counsellors, to teachers and trainers, to pastors, mental health professionals, international women’s speakers, to advocates and other women and girls who are fighting against Sexual exploitation (SE) and sex trafficking (ST)

Our vision is to see sexual exploitation and sex trafficking abolished, and it starts one mind at a time, one life at a time!

Our Values
Our Mission


Emerge worldwide exists to ‘raise awareness' on the terrible crime of sexual exploitation and sex trafficking, restore those who have been victimised, and prevent it from ever happening again through education, public campaigns, outreach and amplifying our voice until freedom rings for all women and girls.
