Human traffickers often target rural communities that lack access to education, where they manipulate and coerce children into slavery.
Our prevention programs are informed by survivors. In Nepal and Cambodia, our team works to research and identify areas of the country with a higher-risk of exploitation or trafficking. We provide children in vulnerable communities with the textbooks, supplies and uniforms needed to attend public rural schools.
With the support of local leadership, our prevention team shares anti-trafficking presentations to educate students, teachers and the wider community about the dangers of human trafficking.
Our short film “The Twelve Thousand” narrates the true story of Sona, a survivor of human trafficking. The film serves 2 purposes: a North American campaign to build new safe homes and a trafficking prevention tool in vulnerable Nepalese communities.
The Twelve Thousand is filmed in the Nepalese language and illustrates the coercion and manipulation traffickers use to trap children in slavery. Our team of dedicated national leaders use The Twelve Thousand film as part of their rural prevention programs.
