Thank you, direct from our community in Thailand

Thank you for making our work possible.
Thank you for making our work possible.

Dear Friend,

2021 has already brought both struggles and joys. We want to take a moment to say thank you for your incredibly generous support of The Freedom Story. 

In the last three months, we have raised over $49,000 on GlobalGiving, including an incredible $20,000 from those of you who have given with gift cards.  Thank you.

Because of You

Your generosity has already had an immediate impact on lives here in Thailand. COVID-related challenges put children at greater risk of trafficking by increasing poverty, increasing marginalization, and increasing the likelihood of children being pulled out of school to work to help keep their families afloat.Your support is critical to furthering education and empowerment, while reducing the vulnerabilities that traffickers prey on. 

Because of your generosity our local staff can:

  • support families like Preeda and Ying’s so children can stay in school and pursue their dreams, rather than being trafficked as their mother was. 
  • apply for governmental support for migrant families who lack access to their rights. This helps counteract wage theft and ensure access to social security.
  • train parents and children understand the dangers of online exploitation and are equipped to fight it in their communities and households.
  • Support families to conduct income generation projects like raising chickens and planting organic vegetables. 
“With our health challenges, [others in the community] look down on us. Other families look at us and ask, “how can they survive?” It is because of The Freedom Story. Many others are waiting for this kind of opportunity, but they can’t get it. 
Anywhere our supporters are in the world, I hope they only experience good things. There are so many people waiting for opportunities.  We can’t speak the same language, we don't get to meet each other, but we think about them all the time.” -- Arpa,* mother of two of our scholarship students

You are essential to our work here in Thailand. Thank you for being an important part of  child trafficking prevention, because every child deserves a safe and secure future.

In Hope,
