Hagar serves trafficked and abused women in Cambodia and Vietnam by providing holistic recovery services, such as residential care, trauma counseling, legal support, literacy education, and employment
Increasing numbers of women in Vietnam and Cambodia are trafficked for sex or labor or suffer domestic abuse. These women typically come from poor families, with little or no education. They have few opportunities for safe and dignified employment. Sadly, the children of these women also become increasingly vulnerable and susceptible to abuse, themselves.
Hagar will provide rehabilitation services, job readiness, and vocational training. Then, survivors will be supported as they reintegrate to society, hold their first jobs, and move from transitional housing to independent living.
Through Hagar and Hagar's partner enterprises, trafficked and abused survivors gain the tools they need to experience safe and dignified work. This enables them to break the cycle of poverty and live an empowered, independent, and successful life.
“I feel more self-confident and strong now. And, I possess a value that is respected by others. I have the right to decide for myself what I can do, and what I want to do…to live a life without fear." - Trang, Vietnamese trafficking survivor
