Opal  Singleton

Opal serves as the 

President and CEO of 

Million Kids and the 

Director of Development 

for Rapha House 

International. As a retired

business executive in 

International Marketing,

Opal understands that to

win the battle to rescue and support victims of trafficking requires the creative resources of an entire community.

Fighting against perpetrators of child trafficking is not for lightweights. This battle requires the expertise and resources of everyone in the community. Whether it is in Cambodia, Thailand or right here in our own backyard in Riverside, California, everyone must come together to protect our young people and vulnerable persons against perpetrators.

Opal meets with business executives, city and county officials, community action groups and concerned individuals to explore ways that they can strengthen the fight against trafficking in their community. From exploring safe havens for a teenage victim who has been exploited through prostitution to working with corporations that employ thousands of laborers, Opal uses her background and experience to find creative solutions to stop trafficking.

If your organization, business or church would like to learn more about trafficking in your community, contact us and request an informative presentation about how to recognize and end trafficking in our region.
