Vision

A society that is fully aware of what Human Trafficking and Modern-Day Slavery looks like, as well as fully equipped and active in combatting it.

Mission

Reducing, Exposing and Preventing Human Trafficking, Modern-Day Slavery and Sexual Exploitation through Education, Activism, Advocacy, Support and Evangelical Outreaches.

Prevention is Key

What we do

Awareness
& Education

Through talks, presentations, webinars, media interviews and YouTube talks, as well as through Social Media.
Only 1-2% of victims ever get saved, therefore prevention is key.

Victim
Identification

Through talks and presentations, as well as collaborating and educating key organisations in vulnerable communities.
If you know what to look for and how to report it, you become active in combatting Human Trafficking.

Reducing Vulnerability

Through key events, where we stand alongside like-minded organisations and host Online Workshops, Online Talks with Experts and Hope to Healing events with Free Counselling for Attendees, in order to help reduce vulnerability. Traffickers pick on the vulnerable, if the vulnerability is reduced, you are less of a target.

Evangelical Outreaches

Street outreaches, as well as hosting of events, in order to assist those Trapped in Trafficking.
If the Victims or the Traffickers realise the truth behind the Love of God, His forgiveness, and His purpose for them, then hope can be restored and Trafficking can be reduced.


Collaboration

Supporting and working with other organisations that are fighting for the same cause.
As a unit, we counter Human Trafficking, some extract, some educate, some counsel, some feed, some equip – we are a family of Anti-Human Trafficking Activists.

Johanita Jordaan

Founder

Johanita Jordaan is the Co-founder of The Joseph Movement. Her passion for combatting Human Trafficking started a few years ago, when she watched the “Nefarious – Merchant of Souls” movie. It gripped her heart deeply and caused her to pray and mourn for months, asking God to have mercy on the children being Trafficked, especially those being Trafficked by their own parents. A friend shared a song with her – “Do Something” by Matthew West. In the song he sings about shouting at God and asking Him “why don’t You do something?” and then God responds in the song: “I did, I created You.”  This is when she realised: I need to Do Something – and she will. 

A personal experience with the sex industry and a loved one being caught up in porn addiction, created a passion within her to combat sexual exploitation.

Johanita was a Volunteer at Stop Trafficking of People NPC and then advanced to being offered a part-time position.

She practiced Judo for 11 years & Jiujitsu for 2 years, and completed a Close Protection Officer course. She then began doing in-depth research on the Criminal Mind & Self-Defense. Johanita wrote & designed a very useful Self-Defense Training Manual for women. While running her own self-defense business, she faced a situation where she was almost killed – this made her realise that it is more the Theory behind the self-defense that saves your life as a woman, and not only the physical capabilities.
