Episode 25: James Pond of Transitions Global returns to discuss human trafficking

Transitions Global's co-founder James Pond (http://www.transitionsglobal.org/) returns to the show to give us an update on the T.G. upcoming projects, progress, and more. In case you missed our first discussion with James on episode #10, he and his wife Athena created Transitions Global in order to provide comprehensive, restorative aftercare for girls rescued from sex trafficking.

Each girl at Transitions receives personalized care to heal from her past and provide opportunities for her future. A girl who finds her home at Transitions finds a new beginning. As stated on the non-proft organization's website, each young lady finds hope, and with holistic trauma therapy, life skills and sustainable career training, she finds a dream for her future.
