FIVE STONES INTERNATIONAL is a faith-based, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by human trafficking. Based in Albuquerque, NM, Five Stones commits to initially addressing the epidemic of modern day slavery at a local level, thereby equipping our community to assist in abolishing slavery on a global scale.
Our name is taken from the biblical account of David, a shepherd boy, and Goliath, a menacing giant whose aim was to destroy God's people. Though small in stature, David did not fear Goliath but instead trusted in God, chose five stones from the stream, and then defeated the giant.
In our modern-day battle against the "giant" of human trafficking, our five stones are awareness, training, outreach, advocacy, and restoration.We invite you to join our efforts by picking up your own stones:
