Summary

Our project trains 50 formerly trafficked girls to become the next generation of anti-trafficking leaders in the Greater Mekong Region (Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, and southern China). These countries share a contiguous border with Thailand and their youth are at the highest risk of human trafficking in the world. Governments provide minimal support for prevention projects. We are 100% focused on teaching prevention methods addressing root causes, sustainability and independence.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Thailand is the epicenter of human trafficking for sex and labor. Poverty, a lack of education & statelessness are why thousands of youth from surrounding countries are at high risk of exploitation. Girls from these areas often accept offers of a "better life" presented by traffickers. The unique leadership training provided enable these young women to return to their countries as pillars in their communities, armed with all the necessary tools to prevent new generations from being trafficked.

How will this project solve this problem?

Young women will receive training in legal rights, fundraising, computer skills, and other practical capabilities. They will work with established anti-trafficking organizations or even start their own. The investment in these 50 girls will undoubtedly create positive social change in the lives of innumerable youth who would otherwise surely succumb to their circumstances with no hope of a real future. The incidents of human trafficking will be reduced as a result of these dynamic young leaders.

Potential Long Term Impact

As the number of trained youth leaders increase, their influence will grow and create an anti-trafficking network in remote areas. This will develop a stable communication infrastructure where they can collaborate with each other in the region, share mutual goals and support each other in pursuing and accomplishing them, thereby expanding a youth movement. Addressing human trafficking in such a direct way will create systemic change in the current anti-trafficking movement as never seen before.
