On behalf of everyone at One Thousand Villages, thank you so much for your support throughout the year.

2018 was a year full of new challenges and some difficult moments. We’ve always believed that effectively addressing trafficking and exploitation is too complex to be solved by single organisations or groups. Many linkages and partnerships are required to have an impact and create more change in the world.

We look ahead to 2019 with excitement for broader engagement and expanding impact, both in new regions and in partnership with existing initiatives.

We’ll keep getting things off the ground without spending super huge amounts of money which is, I think, really important. We’ve got tons of work to do, but we know great things are possible when people stand together.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me by email

Season’s greetings and warm wishes for a happy new year!

Justin Whitecross

Really, really hope you’ll join us again next year!
