EST 2002. BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER TO EMPOWER GIRLS AND PREVENT COMMERCIAL SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF GIRLS.
WHAT WE DO
Programs support young women and girls who are involved in or at risk of commercial sexual exploitation. Our programs are underpinned by long-term partnerships and strategies to improve girls’ education.
We believe that in today’s world people have to respond together in order to make things happen and unlock change. Improving awareness about exploitation and abuse, as well as confronting commonly held attitudes and beliefs that shape behaviours. Prevention requires continued commitment to improving community awareness.
Fostering coalitions and networks to increase support for programs and initiatives across the region. Prevention is achievable through coalitions and networks – reducing duplication and increasing credibility and impact.
Developing self-sustaining enterprise projects and activities. We work with community leaders to strengthen local knowledge and capacity to address the issues of adolescent girls and young women.
ENGAGING PARENTS AND FAMILIES
IN GIRLS' EDUCATION
“For more than twenty years we’ve worked to empower individuals, families, and communities to prevent abuse and sexual exploitation in Thailand and across the Mekong. Prevention requires an investment of resources, people, and leadership to address causes underlying it. I want people to understand what happens to girls and what we can do to stop it.” Founder & CEO Justin Whitecross
We create foundations for girls and communities to work for sustainable change and take charge of their own lives. Read more
