Statement of faith
The official establishment of our foundation was preceded by voluntary social work on the streets beginning in 2001. We offered psychological assistance to girls working on the street, listened to them, and periodically brought them small gifts, food and drink.
Anonymous Ways Foundation was founded in 2012, and was registered by the Metropolital Court of Budapest under the number 11598. Our non-profit foundation primarily offers full rehabilitation and reintegration to victims of human trafficking, mainly sexual exploitation and prostitution. Our additional mission is crime prevention. In this area we cooperate with several civic organizations, and our goal is to widen the circle of organizations and churches to partner with in order to represent our shared agenda.
Servants Anonymous Foundation
Our parent foundation is the Canadian Servants Anonymous Foundation, which has been serving the victims of human trafficking and prostitution for 27 years.
The curriculum we currently use was in fact developed by the Canadian program participants
themselves, based on their own experience of restoration.
The programs of SAF have been implemented in a growing number of cities around the globe.
In America: Vancouver, Kelowna, Grande Prairie, Calgary (Canada), New York City, San Diego (USA)
In Europe: Berlin, Karlsruhe, Stuttgart (Germany), Athens (Greece), Sofia (Bulgaria)
