IOFA was founded in 1999 by Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health Students in response to a gap in programs and services for adolescents worldwide. IOFA was the first organization dedicated to addressing the trafficking of children and youth in the United States and perhaps the world. Since its inception, IOFA has worked to end the trafficking and exploitation of young people across 5 continents and in more than 23 countries.
