Adaptive Operations also supports Global Education Philanthropists and it’s founder Cammy Bowker, who work in the prevention of Human-Trafficking by providing education resources to vulnerable children in risk areas world-wide.
Aros, Cammy, and Coco decided to combine forces, in order to fight Human Trafficking in a three way aproach. By building the Coco Berthmann Scholarship Fund, Counter Human trafficking will now be aproached with:
1) Prevention offered by Global Education Philanthropist
2) Rescues provided by Adaptive Operations, and
3) healing and empowerment for survivor provided with the Scholarship Fund offered to Survivors world wide.
We believe in a world that comes together hand in hand to fight the greatest human right challenge of this history.
