OUR VISION IS TO SEE EVERY GIRL IN THE MEKONG EMPOWERED IN THEIR EVERY DAY LIFE
One Thousand Villages is an international non-profit organisation working in Thailand, the Greater Mekong Subregion and Australia to prevent trafficking and sexual exploitation of girls and young women. We take a unique ‘bottom up’ approach to empowerment by building strong relationships and developing long-term partnerships with people, families, schools and local organisations. Our approach unites people together and fosters progress by empowering community members to address and reduce risk factors from the ground up.
We work with communities – small and large – across Thailand and the Mekong. Programs differ in each community, but the common thread that defines our work is our commitment to forging long-term partnerships with people, families schools and local organisations. Programs include formal and non-formal education, leadership and skills development, campaigning and advocacy, social enterprise, counselling and other community services.
In Australia the program aims to break down widespread perceptions that link travelling in Southeast Asia with sexual entertainment. Over the next four years we plan to engage more Australians in this cause than ever before. Campaigning will reach all pockets of the Australian public, but will have a special focus on tourism and sporting clubs in Australia.
