IJM is the global leader in protecting the poor from violence in the developing world. Our global team of over 1,000 professionals are at work in over 25 offices. Together, we are catalyzing a global revolution that will rescue millions, protect half a billion, and make justice for the poor unstoppable. We rescue victims from slavery and other forms of violence. Together with governments and authorities, we support the prosecution of perpetrators and transform justice systems to combat violence in a sustainable way.

IJM Deutschland e. V. is IJM’s German country office which supports the global mission in various ways. Our 18 employees and more than 800 volunteers mobilize the German civil society, politics and the business sector for the fight against slavery. Since 2013 we have been establishing ourselves as a fast growing and successful NGO in Germany.

It is our goal to play a leading role in the German NGO scene when it comes to digital marketing, fundraising and storytelling. In the coming years, the professionalization and expansion of our Tech Stack and our digital marketing will be of outstanding importance to us, in order to enable consistently data-driven decision-making in the entire organization.
