about our future of change
Our Future of Change is the global, youth-led chapter of Her Future Coalition: an organization providing rehabilitation, education, and employment programs for trafficking survivors in India, Nepal, Cambodia, and Thailand. As the youth-chapter of this organization, Our Future of Change aims to provide students globally ages 13-22 with resources to get involved in the fight against human trafficking. Since initiation in May 2020, Our Future of Change has recruited a team of over 300 ambassadors in 30 countries who are actively working to raise awareness for trafficking in their communities.
After joining Our Future of Change as an ambassador, students can join one of our volunteer committees or start a club in their school or community. We have a news, design, event planning, and outreach committee: all of which play a significant role in helping Our Future of Change to expand.

frequently asked questions
What is OFOC’s mission?
Who are their founders? What experience do they have with activism and anti-trafficking activism?
Why/How was OFOC started? When was OFOC started?
Abigail and Lauren founded this organization because there are so many people who know about the atrocities of human trafficking, but they don’t know how to help or make a difference. So many people believe that human trafficking is unpreventable. At OFOC, we want to change this mindset and so we have decided to spread awareness among students, who will be the future’s leaders. We have been working with Her Future Coalition for about 3 years now. We became the presidents of a Her Future Coalition Club at our school this past year and this past school year we donated about $3,000 to Her Future Coalition. This money helps support the education, employment, and rehabilitation programs that Her Future Coalition provides. It also helps support the shelters that Her Future Coalition has. Abigail and Lauren felt so impacted that they decided to found their own organization alongside Her Future Coalition in May, 2020. Hence, they started Our Future of Change as the youth chapter of HFC with the hopes to support trafficking survivors and high-risk children as well as educate students globally on how they can help prevent trafficking.
How can we help prevent human trafficking?
What partnerships does OFOC have and are they forming partnerships right now?
Our Future of Change is the youth-led chapter of Her Future Coalition. HFC is their only partner; however, HFC has many partners as well, and so OFOC is connected to various organizations. We are excited to announce that HFC recently started a collaboration with Michelle Obama’s Girls’ Opportunity Alliance Initiative! They also have many other partners, such as Yoga Medicine Seva and more. Our Future of Change is not currently forming any partnerships.
