RUN Ministries founder, Eric Watt, has been invited to take over the leadership of Stop Child Trafficking Now (SCTNow), a non-profit organization with a mission to put an end to the trafficking of children into the sex industry.

Stop Child Trafficking Now was formed to fight against child sex trafficking, a growing problem in the United States and in nations around the world.
Eric's continued commitment to rescue children from the evil of trafficking comes from RUN Ministries' ongoing efforts in Nepal and India that result in the rescue and rehabilitation of over 20,000 girls a year.
Watt said of the new appointment, "The opportunity to lend our experience and expertise to a domestically based organization is exciting. To be part of the solution to this growing problem here in the USA gives me great hope that we can stop the cycle of trafficking in towns and cities across America."
