Connect with Our Local Partners

Dark Bali is committed to supporting local anti-trafficking organizations across the country. They are the silent heroes, diligently working on behalf of victims and survivors of human trafficking with few resources and little recognition. In an effort to give them more visibility and highlight the work that they are doing, we are creating a public directory of organizations within our coalition. For more information on how you can give to or connect with one of these organizations (including translation assistance), send us an email. We would be delighted to make an introduction.

The not-for-profit organizations listed below run on the financial donations and volunteer hours of concerned global citizens. Each organization has complete endorsement of Dark Bali for efficacy and ethics.
