Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
