Transitions Global

Restoring young girls through the power of a dream. Transitions provides comprehensive restorative aftercare for girls rescued from sex trafficking. Each girl at Transitions receives personalized care to heal her past and provide opportunities for her future. A girl who finds her home at Transitions finds a new beginning. She finds hope, and with holistic trauma therapy, life skills and sustainable career training, she finds a dream for her future. We help girls transition, through the power of a dream, from darkness to light, from victim to survivor to world changer.

Shine Career School - A Dream Realized

Shine Computer Lab
Shine Computer Lab

At Transitions we believe every girl in our program deserves the highest level of dignity and opportunity we can provide. We also believe every girl is capable of achieving her dreams with the right support and encouragement.  We don’t allow girls to settle for what society has told them they are capable of, like sewing and handy-crafts; we know they can do so much more. While every girl in our program studies English and computer technology, sometimes the advanced training she needs to begin the career of her dreams doesn’t exist in Cambodia.


Shine Career School is the realization of six years of dreaming on our part! Shine provides a firsthand opportunity to train girls in any career field they choose, and will serve to overcome the gap in training choices, by providing a high quality learning environment.  Shine will facilitate teaching opportunities for professionals around the world, in a variety of fields, to come to Cambodia and teach, while empowering survivors with the skills and knowledge they need to take control of their lives.


Shine will mirror our current program model and be fully social work focused and trauma-informed, toward healthy reintegration into Cambodian society. Our goal is to give girls the best opportunity to achieve their dreams and  have a successful future, while assisting graduates in job placement or business start-up, ensuring the highest chance of success.  We hope you will join us in supporting this vital new project and maybe even consider coming to Cambodia to teach some day!

An Exciting Fall!

A new arrival at the TLC.
A new arrival at the TLC.

Exciting new things are happening at Transitions this fall! We just received a new referral, which means we have a beautiful new young lady to love and help build a future. This coming week, two more new girls will arrive. Time to dream!! Another young lady who is a graduate of our program is seeing her dream come true this fall as well. She wants to be a social worker, so she can help girls who have gone through the same things she has. The incredible part is she has come back to train at Transitions as we have just opened up social work internships with the Royal University of Phnom Penh. Our Clinical Team, which is supervised by Summer Twyman and Dr. Wend Freed has opened up training in advanced trauma therapy and case management to University students and now, our graduate! She will learn and grow in the field she wants to serve in and end up highly trained and filled with insights and compassion others can’t know. We are so proud of her for her dedication and hard work.

Thank you for your support!

Dear Friends,


Thank you for supporting our suvivors and their yoga training. All the trainees are doing so well and preparing for extensive certifications in Thailand, and continuing to teach displaced children. We are so proud of them and can't wait to see what the future brings. As of now we are deactivating this project as the purpose for it has passed. All the funds we have received so far have been used for yoga training and we all appreciate you so much! Thank you from the whole Transitions Team.
