Places where International Justice Mission (IJM) Serves
Next week, Pope Francis will come to America. He is scheduled to talk about the extreme refugee problem and suggest what the the United States’ part should be in providing for these desperate people fleeing from the horrors of the Middle East.
This is another organization who is working to eradicate extreme poverty working for the same result but with a slightly different approach. The video below was filmed at the TED meeting in Canada last spring. TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading international ideas , usually in short powerful talks.
Gary Haugen is an civil rights attorney and the founder of International Justice Mission.
Have you heard of IJM before? What do you think of their approach in working to end extreme poverty?
I am thrilled that in India, known for horrible in justice of slavery abuses, there are thousands of policemen already trained and working with IJM representatives. IJM only goes into countries where they are invited by the authorities to train, guide and stop the “Everyday violence that rages on in many places on the earth.”
