Co-Founder & Executive Director
Kimba likes to refer to herself as an “accidental abolitionist.” An Emmy-award winning producer and 20-year veteran of the television and video production industry, Kimba has always had a passion for storytelling. Just two short years ago, though, the story of modern day slavery and sex trafficking wasn’t even on her radar. When her friend David approached her as a partner for a new organization he wanted to form to empower survivors of sex trafficking, she was intrigued. Little did she know how the issue would grab her heart and never let go.
Kimba heads the Free The Girls U.S. office and is responsible for day-to- day domestic operations of the organization, which includes speaking to women’s groups on the subject of human trafficking, igniting fires in new abolitionists, raising funds for the cause, and packing and shipping thousands of bras. Kimba hopes she serves as an example that global change requires people from all types of backgrounds to step up and offer what they can where they are.
Co-Founder & GLOBal Director
Dave creates businesses that help to sustain NGOs and other projects around the world. He is passionate about using enterprise as a solution to poverty and as a vehicle for a better future for women who have been rescued from the sex-trade. After over a decade of work at various NGOs and not-for-profit organizations in the United States, Dave and his family moved to Mozambique to the front-lines of poverty driven sex-trafficking in Africa. Before leaving for Africa, Dave and Kimba started Free The Girls to help connect the average woman in America to survivors of sex-trafficking in Sub-Saharan Africa. As International Director for Free The Girls he works day-to-day with survivors and is responsible for our partnerships with safe-houses and rehabilitation centers around the world.
