Bringing people together to empower girls and prevent sexual exploitation and trafficking  in Thailand and across the Mekong region

We’ve been facilitating and building relationships with village-based schools, community leaders, parents, and households for almost two decades. Strong relationships create a platform for dialogue and opportunities to connect and engage people in addressing girls’ empowerment. You’ll want to learn about our programs – building knowledge, enterprises, and leadership. In Australia, you’ll find us in Melbourne serving crowds of people at a well known space ‘The Outdoor Kitchen’.

Living in regions surrounding major sex tourism hubs, countless girls are drawn into prostitution. Vulnerability can only be removed by addressing the root causes of the problem: poverty, gender norms, and lack of education. One Thousand Villages utilises a unique personal approach that works closely with local women, schools, and community leaders to tackle these root causes.
