Senior Research and Evaluation Manager At The Freedom Fund

About the Freedom Fund

The Freedom Fund is a leader in the global movement to end modern slavery. We identify and invest in the most effective frontline efforts to eradicate modern slavery in the countries and sectors where it is most prevalent. Partnering with visionary investors, governments, community-based organisations and those at risk of exploitation, we tackle the systems that allow slavery to persist and thrive.

In its first seven years, the Freedom Fund has supported over 140 organisations in Bangladesh, Brazil, Ethiopia, Indonesia, India, Myanmar, Nepal and Thailand. Many of these are grassroots NGOs working in communities affected by slavery, and collectively they have had a direct positive impact on over 900,000 vulnerable people.

The Fund supports interventions at the community level and also seeks to change broader systems, including weak government policy and enforcement, irresponsible business practices and harmful social norms. We seek to build civil society coalitions and foster social movements to help drive change from the bottom up, while also working internationally to influence the global systems that allow slavery to persist. The Fund has built a reputation for excellence and is backed by a diverse group of donors.
