Human trafficking survivor to speak at fundraising banquet

Mojabeng Mosebo was skeptical but excited when she received an invitation for a ‘lucrative’ job offer in South Africa. It was 2009, and the then 30-year-old mother of two was in a deep financial crisis. An opportunity to work for a prestigious clothing store was exactly what she needed to restart her life.

When Mojabeng left her hometown of Maseru, Lesotho, for the job interview, she had no idea her journey would lead to a Japanese prison. Mojabeng spent three years in the crossfires of human trafficking, where she was used as a drug mule to smuggle illegal substances across borders. 

She faced trauma after trauma, peril after peril, but she never lost hope for a brighter future. Now Mojabeng advocates against human trafficking and is “a voice for the voiceless.”

Mojabeng Mosebo to share her story

Mojabeng will be coming to Oklahoma in February to share the harrowing details of her journey. We have invited her to speak at the “One Beautiful Evening” fundraising event. Mojabeng is a beautiful example of how tragedy can lead to triumph. She’ll explain how her trauma has emboldened her to lead the fight against human trafficking in Lesotho and South Africa. 

Mojabeng currently serves as the Executive Director over 24 staff members at Beautiful Dream Society’s ministry in Lesotho. BDS operates the only shelter for victims of human trafficking and minor victims of sexual assault in the entire country, as well as the BDS Children’s Homes for orphans and vulnerable children.

The grim reality of sexual assault in Lesotho

Lesotho has some of the worst rape statistics in the world, second only to Botswana. There are 89.2 reported accounts of sexual assault per 100,000 people in Lesotho, and that does not take into account the thousands of incidents that go unreported each year.

What happens when an adoption doesn’t work out?

Lesotho has a large population of orphans, largely due to the poverty and lack of resources in the region. Some of these children are lucky enough to be adopted or reunited with distant family members, but those situations do not work out for everyone.

End human trafficking.
