I am so excited to join this project [and secretly thrilled at the prospect of meeting my real life hero Somaly Mam]. Ever since I saw The Killing Fields 30 years ago I have had a heart for Cambodia and it's people; ever since I read Road to Lost Innocence I have had a heart for Somaly Mam and her foundation.
I want to share this trip with everyone so I can help to raise awareness, raise consiousness and yes - raise money to help fulfill the vision and mission :
"Our Vision: A world where women and children are safe from slavery
Our Mission: To give victims and survivors a voice in their lives, liberate victims, end slavery, and empower survivors as they create and sustain lives of dignity."
I cant think of a better place to be Feb 28 - March 10 2012
