It’s up to us to change what a culture considers normal.

The Mekong. Unique cultures and astounding natural beauty. Our home.

The sex trade in Southeast Asia represents the worst side of human nature. We believe that in today’s world people have to respond together in order to make things happen and unlock change. We connect with people and engage to create positive outcomes, preventing exploitation and abuse of girls.

Objectification and sexualisation of girls is wrong. By engaging people locally, we’re building dialogue and supporting families and individuals to tackle the toughest problems. Our project areas

Sexualised violence against girls in Thailand is not a joke. Sexist attitudes perpetuate violence and abuse and is mostly excused. We cannot allow men to objectify girls for sexual pleasure. Going on a trip to Thailand?

We invite you to invest in the development of partnerships and capacity at the local level to prevent sexual exploitation of girls and, very importantly, support victims who are sexually exploited. Given that we are working with children and families in impoverished areas, there is a pressing need for education and more enterprises to create pathways out of poverty. Your donations and fundraising will help develop interventions and important prevention programs to address the root causes and multiple vulnerabilities that place girls, families and communities at risk.
