iEMPOWER! Mission

Did you know that a child is lured or forced into trafficking every 26 seconds?

That’s about 140 kids an hour!

Over 3 thousand kids a day!

And more than 1 million kids a year!

Did you know that child trafficking is a global problem?

It’s not just happening overseas, but also in every state across America.

iEMPOWER! was created  to raise awareness of child trafficking and to support survivors.

Doesn’t every child deserve to sparkle?

How Can YOU Help?

Thai Girl Making Jewelry

iEMPOWER! has launched a campaign where YOU can make a difference.

Buy a Star, Empower a Child Campaign

iEMPOWER! adopted a Destiny Rescue home in Thailand where survivors heal and rebuild their lives. Each child is offered vocational training to transition out of the sex trade and secure future earnings.

iEMPOWER! has teamed up with the Destiny Rescue Jewelry Studio Artists to find homes for their one-of-a-kind Holiday Star Ornaments!

Will you help us?

By selling, gifting, or donating a Star, you will help spread the word and further empower survivors.



Every Star is a one-of-a-kind treasure handcrafted by a sex trade survivor.

Each Star measures about 4 1/2” x 3” and includes a brochure on trafficking.

About the Founder and President

IMG_5149 - Version 2

My name is Aubrey.

I started iEMPOWER! in 8th grade with my sister, Anjuli.

We love to play soccer!!!

We have three big dogs.

My favorite food is chocolate.

I learned about human trafficking from my mom who’s writing a book about a Thai girl named Tida who’s tricked into the sex trade. By her uncle!!

When I grow up I want to become a human rights lawyer to fight for girls like Tida.

I started iEMPOWER! because of something Anne Frank wrote in her diary:

“Nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

My soccer team is joining me

to support survivors and raise awareness of human trafficking.

Check out our team video!

I want to make a difference!

Don’t you?



Thanks for finding your way to iEMPOWER!

Proud supporters of Change a Path, Destiny Rescue, and AnnieCannons.
