Purpose of SAFE CHILD:
“To eradicate child-trafficking, unite communities & families, break the fear of being trafficked and give children their freedom back.”
Message of SAFE CHILD:
We have the tools to prevent trafficking right here.
The SAFE CHILD program equips children with tools to be a safe child. Then they are reminded of their value: I am special….I am precious….I can dream…. I can call for help.
The first child safe program began in a community center, with an unbelievable effort by anti-trafficking advocates from all over Thailand as well as dedicated international volunteers working together in the community to raise and build awareness regarding trafficking prevention.
This began just days after two children were abducted in one of the under-privileged communities we have been able to ineract with. The girls were later found and returned to their home, traumatized but physically unharmed. One of the local community leaders stated she hears of abductions happening at least once a month, yet this is the FIRST TIME hearing that the children have been returned.
WE HAD TO DO SOMETHING.
We began to find a way to protect the children and youth of this community. We were honored to be able to put together an awareness program.
