The Freedom Fund is a philanthropic initiative designed to bring financial resources and strategic focus to the fight against modern slavery. Its primary objective is to achieve a measurable reduction in modern slavery, by addressing trafficking, exploitation, forced labour, child labour, and debt bondage. The Freedom Fund partners with local organisations in targeted geographic regions to support them to protect those at risk of slavery, liberate those enslaved and help them recover, and prosecute those responsible. We work to establish conditions that enable sustainable freedom.
Through the Thailand Hotspot Program, the Freedom Fund is dedicated to preventing and addressing labour exploitation within the seafood sector. The Thailand Hotspot works with six implementing partner organisations to deliver projects that support migrant workers to claim their rights and advocate for improved regulations and systems to promote the welfare of migrant workers working within Thailand.
The Freedom Fund is currently seeking proposals to provide the following technical assistance.
Goal: To strengthen the fundraising capacity of 6 Freedom Fund partners in the Thailand hotspot. This will include assisting partners to evaluate their current organisational program strategy, donor relationships, analyse funding trends within the fields of business and human rights and articulate their individual fundraising strategies. The consultant will help each partner to develop a current fundraising proposal to put skills learnt into practice. In addition, with the current phase of Freedom Fund’s Thailand hotspot program near completion, the chosen provider will also facilitate partner organisations to reflect on the next phase of their program strategy, taking into consideration strengths of their current programs and areas for improvement, and hence what areas they may wish to fundraise on.
