Free a Girl organizes “Lock me Up – Free a Girl”, with the objective of liberating as many young girls as possible from prostitution. It all started in 2011 in the Netherlands. During the 9th edition of Lock me Up - Free a Girl, from Monday 13th of May until Sunday 19th of May 2019, several cages of 1 by 2 meter are distributed throughout the Netherlands and Belgium at restaurants and companies. These cages are a symbol for the cages of Indian brothels. Participants are willingly locked up for 12 hours and each will collect a minimum of €2.500 for fundraising. Every location will have 2 cages for at least five, six or seven days to assure that a minimum of €25.000,- will be fundraised. The total amount of fundraising will be announced on Monday 20th of May 2019. All the 290 participants in 2018 have fundraised over more than €514.000! Therefore, Free a Girl strives to fundraise the magical amount of €1.000.000,- . Are you joining us in the battle against child prostititution?
Lock me Up - Free a Girl is an initiative from the Free a Girl foundation and ambassador Wimmy Hu.
