Fundación Pasos Libres is a not-for-profit organization that seeks to revolutionize the way to prevent and disrupt human trafficking through the design, development, and implementation of innovative strategies, methodologies, and technologies to contribute to building more peaceful and just societies.
How we do it
Pasos Libres has designed a strategic plan that seeks to position the prevention of human trafficking as an essential issue on the domestic and international agenda.
Traffik Analysis Hub
Pasos Libres is the first Latin American partner of Traffik Analysis Hub (TA Hub), an impactful collaboration across industries and sectors including financial institutions, NGOs, law enforcement and government agencies that collect, share and analyze large volumes of data and information about human trafficking worldwide through the use of advanced cognitive technologies developed by IBM.
DataJam Pasos Libres
The DataJam Pasos Libres is an innovation competition that brings together young people, non-profit organizations, companies, governments and international cooperation interested in the use, analysis, and visualization of data to identify irregularities and trends related to human trafficking. The DataJam Pasos Libres is born out of the success of the BlueHack Against Human Trafficking created in 2018 for Fundación Pasos Libres and IBM, and was the preface to the landing of the Traffik Analysis Hub in Colombia and Latin America.
BlueHack Pasos Libres
First hackathon in Colombia that seeks to solve challenges in the prevention and investigation of human trafficking, as well as the identification and assistance to victims of this crime through the development of innovative technological tools. This event was held for the first time in Bogotá, Colombia in 2018, being replicated in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and New Jersey, the United States in 2019.

More Pedal Less Trafficking
LET'S PEDAL AGAINST TRAFFICKING
More Pedal Less Trafficking: Let's pedal against Trafficking! It is the first bike observation race in Colombia that seeks to educate and raise awareness about human trafficking using sport as a means to provide citizens with unique learning, prevention, and self-care experience. This project is the product of the joint work of Fundación Pasos Libres and Curvas en Bici Bogotá.
Since 2018 Pasos Libres has driven an important international agenda in five countries and four continents. With the support of the United States Institute of Peace, Thomson Reuters Foundation, IOM and Innovation for Change, our organization has shared its projects with governments, companies, activists, international cooperation agencies and even the Dalai Lama.
