The 2019 Adobe Free at Last event was a great success! We are so grateful for the 60 employees that volunteered to set up new Kindle Fire tablets, write cards of encouragement for survivors, and take our online training course.
This is the second Free at Last event that was held at Adobe Headquarters in Lehi, Utah. In 2018, Adobe employees helped us put together “victim receiving kits.” The O.U.R. Aftercare team has been able to take these assembled kits to survivors all over the world. The kits have been especially helpful for the first moments after the rescue to provide for the survivors’ immediate needs. They also help provide important resources to help prevent survivors from being retraumatized right after the rescue. We are so grateful for the partnership with Adobe.
250 Kindle Fire tablets
Hundreds of Kindle Fire tablets were generously donated by the Malouf Foundation in 2018 and 2019. Last year, the O.U.R. Aftercare team was able to strategically place 250 tablets around the world in aftercare homes. They are used for homework support, learning English, writing reports, and taking pictures of the fun moments in the lives of survivors at aftercare homes. We are excited to be able to place the next 250 tablets in 2019.
Letters of encouragement, O.U.R. speakers, and training
In addition to setting up Kindle Fire tablets, Adobe employees were also able to write letters of encouragement to survivors in Haitian Creole, Spanish, and English.
Tim Ballard and other O.U.R. team members delivered inspiring messages of hope and need. O.U.R. is grateful to be able to share stories of our work to such an amazing audience that is ready to fight against human trafficking.
The Adobe employees also had the opportunity to take our Signs of Trafficking training course. This free training course is a great tool to help people learn the signs of trafficking, how to react, and how to report suspicious situations.
Adobe has provided invaluable support to survivors across the world. We are excited to deliver these Kindle Fire tablets to survivors to aid in education and aftercare!
