Hagar restores to wholeness the lives of women and children in Afghanistan, Cambodia and Vietnam that have been torn apart by human rights abuse. “Whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to restore a life to wholeness”. This mantra is the heartbeat of Hagar, motivated by faith and a strong desire for justice.

Established in Cambodia in 1994, Hagar launched programming in both Afghanistan and Vietnam in 2009. Hagar is all about “coming alongside” survivors during their journey, with each having a unique path based on their needs and desires for the future. At Hagar we often say,  Watch this 4 minute video in which our Global CEO shares more of Hagar’s story and you will also hear a survivor’s account of being trafficked to China.

Because we believe that broken lives can become whole again.

Hagar’s name derives from the biblical story of Hagar in Genesis 16 and 21. Read the Hagar Biblical Story.

Currently, Hagar supports 1,200 women and child victims of trafficking, domestic violence and exploitation in Afghanistan, Cambodia and Vietnam. They were among the world’s most broken and despondent people… but not now.
