Safe Port Initiative

Distance Learning

                                                                             SPI's Academic Program has been an integral part of our recovery process for survivors of

                                                                             human trafficking since our inception in 2012. Offering high school completion, college prep, tutoring, continuing education, vocational training, and general academic enrichment, this critical program enhances self-esteem and empowers survivors for success in school, work and life. As we develop our residential campus , all of these instructional services will be offered to survivors in a safe, stable, residential environment through our onsite Academy for Secondary & Continuing Education.

Through the use of avatars, Safe Port Initiative has the ability to create culture-specific content, delivered in the student's native language. In this way, education is made equally available to all survivors on a global level.

For most victims of persecution, human trafficking and other human rights violations,  the hopes and dreams they cherished as young children have fallen prey to depression and self-doubt. Through education, however, they learn how to recapture their dreams and turn them into reality. It is for this purpose that SPI's Distance Learning Program was established.

Through our global partnerships with NGO's and businesses, we have gained access to thousands of formal meetings spaces with audio-and video conferencing capabilities so that , with the assistance of local proctors, we can deliver  primary, secondary, vocational, and adult education to survivors around the world, equipping them with the knowledge, skills and confidence they
need to become self-sufficient, contributing members of society.

Our long-term goal for this program is to develop curriculum leading to the award of internationally accredited college degrees.
