FAIR Fund is a nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C. with programs in the D.C. area, Bosnia, Serbia, Russia, Kenya, Uganda, and Cameroon.
FAIR Fund works alongside youth and their communities to prevent sexual violence, human trafficking, and dating violence in the lives of young people, especially girls.
We were founded in 2003 by two young women advocates, Andrea Powell and Caroline Tower Morris.
FAIR Fund, founded in 2003, engages youth and their communities to prevent dating violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking in the lives of young people. FAIR Fund incorporates youth experiences and voices into our programs to ensure that our work is culturally appropriate and most closely tied to the real needs of youth in the communities we serve. FAIR Fund's work centers on preventing gender-based violence though community training and organizing, alternative life-skills and rehabilitation programs, and preventative and outreach teen education.
FAIR Fund's staffs of seven come from a truly multi-cultural background with degrees in social justice, counseling, law, public relations, international affairs, and criminal justice. Our international boards of directors include former diplomats, state department officials, feminist authors, songwriters, anti-war advocates, World Bank officials, international philanthropists, human rights attorneys, and finance experts. In our first five years of existence, FAIR Fund has worked in 11 countries to assist over 15,000 young people and build the capacity of over 40 social service agencies to better identify and assist youth at risk toward sexual violence and exploitation. Our funding comes from the Department of Justice, private foundations, individuals, and the European Union. FAIR Fund is the co-chair of the D.C. Anti Trafficking Task Force's Children's Committee and has trained over 400 local and international law enforcement lawyers in anti-trafficking and child rights. FAIR Fund is also co-chair of the international committee of the Freedom Network USA and was recently awarded the Washington Area Women's Foundation's Award for Excellence in Leadership for our work in promoting the safety of women and girls. In Serbia, Bosnia, and Kenya, FAIR Fund has been invited to train local governmental officials in child rights and anti-trafficking and assisting youth victims of sexual assault. FAIR Fund has experience in working with state orphanages and youth leaving orphan care or living on the streets in four countries: Armenia, Bosnia, Serbia, and Kenya. Our art therapy and financial empowerment program, JewelGirls, is based in Belgrade, Serbia and has taught 26 street and formerly trafficked Roma girls how to make and market high end jewelry as a means of therapy, social reintegration, and economic independence.
