NoVo Foundation Announces $10 Million Funding Opportunity to Close On-ramps to Sexual Exploitation—and Open Exit Ramps

  • April 19, 2019

ABOUT THE LIFE STORY GRANTS: The trajectories of girls and women in the sex trade are often marked by many on-ramps into exploitation—poverty, violence, discrimination and system failure—and few exit ramps for girls and women who seek to leave. The NoVo Foundation learned about these often unseen realities from those who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation (CSE), over years of listening and partnership. A year ago, we launched The Life Story: Moments of Change to illuminate these truths, lifting up the voices, experiences and insights of survivors.


NoVo Foundation is dedicated to building a more just and balanced world. Created in 2006 by Jennifer and Peter Buffett, NoVo has become one of the largest private foundations in the world to support initiatives focused explicitly on girls and women, including a dedicated focus on ending violence against girls and women and supporting adolescent girls. NoVo’s deeply interconnected works also seeks to advance social and emotional learning, support Indigenous communities and promote thriving local communities.
