Summary

In Thailand, The Freedom Project works with children at risk to prevent human trafficking & child sexual exploitation through education & community development. Through educational scholarships, tutoring, mentors, workshops & additional programs at our community Resource Center, we're helping more than 130 children reach their potential & become the leaders of tomorrow.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Half of all children in rural northern Thailand are forced by poverty to drop out of school at a young age & very few continue past primary school. The statistics are even worse for girls, who are often obligated to provide income for their families. Many of them, lacking education & resources, end up exploited in Thailand's sex industry.

How will this project solve this problem?

The SOLD Project developed its holistic "Freedom Project" prevention program and opened its Resource Center to keep children at risk off the path to prostitution & give them hope for a better future. By providing educational scholarships & access to tutoring, mentors, trafficking awareness courses, English lessons & other skills training, SOLD is transforming lives. Drop-out rates have plummeted & for the first time girls in this community are pursuing high school & university degrees.

Potential Long Term Impact

By investing in the education & development of these at-risk children, we not only prevent them from becoming victims of exploitation, but we free them to succeed, rise from poverty, & change the future for their families, their children, & beyond. These children are a new generation with the tools and understanding to become Thailand's future leaders.
