FreeToBeKids exists to rescue, shelter and set free children faced with extreme situations of exploitation and abuse.
FreeToBeKids is a not-for-profit humanitarian aid organisation that is working to rescue, shelter and set free children who are facing extreme situations of abuse and exploitation. FreeToBeKids was founded in 2005 by Benj Geerling after he was moved to do something to rescue a young girl who was offered for a few dollars on the streets of India. FreeToBeKids has a small team in Melbourne, Australia, and is currently working in India and the Philippines. We shouldn’t exist, but there are facts about the world we live in that we can’t ignore. We believe something must be done to rescue children who find themselves trapped in situations of abuse and exploitation and have no one else to speak up for them.
