Rachel Goble is the President of The Freedom Story
(formerly The SOLD Project) organization. Her vision and mission to see every child given the opportunity of education and the ability to achieve their dreams comes from her deep commitment to the belief that every life is valuable, priceless and worthy of the calling placed on it. Rachel’s degrees and experience in business and nonprofit development work gave Rachel the expertise and insight to fight child trafficking through innovations in prevention, education, and mentorship.
Rachel and The Freedom Story believe in the power of story, and after production of the film “The SOLD Project:Thailand” (2009), Rachel traveled to over 27 cities in America to share the hope that exists in prevention. Today, thanks to the power of these stories, The Freedom Story sponsors 140 students at-risk in Northern Thailand and has seen the drop-out rate statistics drop from 50% to 5% in the past five years. Prevention works, and is evident in the lives of the students that The Freedom Story is affecting. Freedom was the first place recipient of Nike’s GIRL EFFECT Award in 2013 and is on the Top Rated List of Great NonProfits.
Rachel Goble graduated from Westmont College with a BA in Business Economics and Fuller Theological Seminary with an MA in CrossCultural Studies. Rachel has spoken at dozens of events and Universities including the National Prayer Breakfast about the importance of prevention of child exploitation. In 2012 she was recognized as a finalist for the Edna Social Justice Award, which honors women leaders in the social justice movement.
Rachel also has a passion for the intersection of justice and the arts and is the owner of Rachel Goble Photography.
