TRIBE Freedom Foundation is a charity on a mission to fight modern slavery and end human trafficking. They work by raising awareness of trafficking, supporting survivors and enabling frontline projects to prevent modern slavery. They empower communities to create an impact.
Did you know?
- An estimated 40.3 million people are living in modern slavery worldwide.
- The latest Global Report on Trafficking in Persons shows that female victims continue to be most affected by trafficking; 65% victims are women and girls.
- Most cases of trafficking within high-income countries involve sexual exploitation of girls or young women.
- Women have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 economic recession, putting them at even greater risk of exploitation and trafficking.
This needs to stop.
I've joined the TRIBE #ChoosetoChallenge International Women's Day Team to help take a stand against modern slavery and empower survivors to regain their freedom and independence.
I've set myself the challenge to create an inspiring route in my home town. My ambition for this route is to share with locals (and when travel is permitted, visitors) some of the wonderful trails on our doorstep. Beyond this, I want to share how simple it is to either create your own routes or how to discover ones already available.
The St Austell Skyline, 7 miles. This route is 90% trail and as the name suggests takes you up high to discover a different view of the old market town and beyond to the coast. This route is suitable for walkers, runners, horse riders (in part), off-road cyclists (with caution) and more.
This route is a guideline. In fact, exploring is encouraged! Your adventure, is exactly that, YOURS! Embrace the freedom that a lot of us take for granted and remind us all that it's worth fighting to return to those subjected to Modern Slavery their freedom.
Please enjoy the St Austell Skyline. If you do use this route please share your support with a donation of your choice. I'd also love to see your posts on social media, if doing so please tag @jodiegauld, @tribefreedomfoundation and #ChoosetoChallenge / #StASkyline.

Funds raised will be split between four incredible projects, each providing long-term support for the survivors of modern slavery, delivered by HERA, Ella's, The Helen Bamber Foundation and Justice & Care.
