The Mission of The Embracing Project is to promote Peace and Global Consciousness through the development of programs that enrich the lives of children, youth, and families around the world.


Our Vision

The Embracing Project (TEP) is a non-profit organization formed in 2007 to help build unity among young people from around the world who have suffered from violence, using their experiences as a way to heal each other. We provide our youth with the tools to understand that every person in the world is equal, regardless of their race, ethnicity, color, neighborhood, faith, culture, gender, or sexual orientation. Our two main areas are serving survivors of sex trafficking and youth involve in gangs to teach them the similarities between gangs and genocide. We provide opportunities for both groups to be in service and participate in humanitarian projects that TEP has in Liberia.
