Our mission starts by stopping for the one in front of us. We aim to set up safe houses to rescue and restore children by giving them life and love. In order to see this injustice come to an end, we must also challenge the mindsets that are deeply rooted in the culture of Cambodia, and fight against the causes of human trafficking. We will do this by working with other NGOs, members of the local community, and the government.
Our first base, and head office is in Phnom Penh , the country’s capital. With a population of over 2 million people, this city is a hotspot for trafficking, and sex tourism. We are joining forces with various other NGOs working to rescue the vast numbers of child sex slaves who are in Phnom Penh. We also have a base in Sihanoukville , situated a few hours south west of Phnom Penh. Each year, thousands of tourists pass through Sihanoukville, attracted by its sunshine, beaches, bars, and restaurants. However, sex tourism is a huge industry here also. We are setting up a boys’ day centre here so that we can identify those most in need of our help and start the process of rescue.
