As a result of your generous support, proceeds from the event will benefit Ratanak International’s Trafficking Prevention Program. The Trafficking Prevention Program reaches thousands of Cambodian community members each year, educating families on the signs and dangers of trafficking, The Prevention Program reflects Ratanak’s belief that a balanced approach needs to be taken to address exploitation. This program works at the community level in many villages and now operates in most border provinces seeking to educate, enable, and strengthen the understanding of the perils of human trafficking.
Thousands of Cambodian community members are educated each year. Many of the community leaders expressed their gratitude for the training and shared their desire to see greater awareness and education among community members. As a result of the training, hundreds of community leaders have become dedicated to preventing trafficking from taking place and communities are being empowered to take a stand for their children.
