Program: Kelly Franklin Farmtown Canada
Kelly says ‘she hates that she has to do this work but loves that she gets to do this work!’
All people working at Farmtown are unpaid volunteers.
London is the largest centre in Canada for Human Trafficking. 
The girls in the program help with ideas as to the care they need.
The girls in this program cannot go to regular group homes in case they are pressured to recruits new girls to traffic.
Many girls are in grave danger if their managers think they will go to court and testify.
Kelly’s staff does a lot of training to hospital, police, teachers, restaurants etc. so people can see when trafficking is taking place.
Kelly compares helping  these girls is like ‘nailing jello to a tree’.
Boys are also being trafficking for sex and labour.
Trafficking has no boundaries with religion, location, financial, race etc.
It may take up to two years to recruit a girl through emails, texts, meetings etc.
Girls are isolated, controlled and their phones are monitored.  The girls feel threatened.
If you suspect someone is in trouble do not approach them, call crimestoppers.
Kelly is  looking for volunteers to help with training in how to bring awareness to community. 
She is also looking for volunteer contributions of $25.00 for en route presence.  Envelopes were passed out to make donations.  For those not at the meeting  Suzanne has extra.
Kelly had her book for sale all proceeds go to Farmtown.
