For survivors of modern slavery, the end of the nightmare is hardly the end of the story. After rescue or escape, the recovery process begins.
That process can be long and complicated, and it’s often aided by anti-slavery organizations. Not long ago, one of them, who has worked alongside local authorities to rescue over 53,000 survivors from violence and oppression, recognized an opportunity to improve its global recovery programs. As the NGO developed a 10-year plan to scale the number of people it serves by 20 times, it approached Noble Intelligence—a group of data and analytics experts from McKinsey Analytics that uses advanced technologies and AI to help address social and humanitarian crises—to understand the best ways to help survivors recover and reintegrate into society.
