Human trafficking is undoubtedly one of the gravest violations of human rights. It is estimated that 21 million people have been trafficked in our world today for labour, sexual exploitation, marriage, child soldiers, begging and domestic servitude. Chab Dai is working to bring an end to end trafficking and sexual exploitation through coalition building, community prevention, advocacy and research.
Their Vietnamese Prevention Program and Doorsteps Project aim to reduce sexual exploitation in Cambodia through community prevention, training, coaching and mentoring for grassroots organisations in Cambodia working to address this issue.
The Vietnamese Prevention Program provides training and education to leaders within ethnic Vietnamese communities about issues relating to trafficking, rape, sexual abuse and child protection, especially in areas where ethnic Vietnamese girls are at high risk of being abused and exploited. A recent study by Chab Dai found that almost every child and adult in these communities had a firsthand story of a family they knew personally, who had sold a girl child, with virgin sale being particularly common. Children reported being afraid that it could happen to them, and powerless to know how to ‘fight against it’.
The Doorsteps Project works with anti-trafficking organisation in Cambodia to build their organisational capacity and standards through training, mentoring and coaching. The project works particularly with grassroots and smaller organisations who often struggle to find or afford the training they need to build their organisation’s capacity and effectiveness.
