Human trafficking, addressed as modern day slavery – it involves the movement of men, women and/or children by means of deception, coercion or threat for the purposes of exploitation. Persons who suffer from many forms of exploitation, although rescued, might never be able to escape the reoccurring trauma in their minds. Governments, organizations, civil societies and activists around the world are actively involved in the process to end this crime—prevention, rescue, and rehabilitation. That being said, it does not mean that we cannot do anything to ease the pain. Instead, we have to do even more. Simply because we can. Rescue and rehabilitation require much longer time to take effects and garner results, while prevention is an effort that aims at leaving no one at stake of experiencing the most inhumane, disdainful act of exploitation. Our stand is that prevention is when one does not wait for someone else or other external forces to act on a cause, but when an action is taken because of their own belief in the cause and in their own capacities to do something about it.

Hence, SEALNet Project Cambodia 2016 – Siem Reap (PC16 – SR) envisions to empower the at-risk children of trafficking to become future leaders of their vulnerable communities and strengthen the capacity of youth leaders in contribution to Siem Reap.

Under two pillars of SEALNetleadership and service, the project aims at two target groups: the local adolescents (mentees) and the at-risk children of human trafficking in Siem Reap.

  • In the leadership component, we hope to bring together the passionate youth in Siem Reap to underscore their role and spark their interest in the community services and intensively train them with necessary skills to realize their potential and their community-based initiatives.


  • In the service component, a comprehensive curriculum of human trafficking in the local context is tailored to mentees and the children at risk of human trafficking, so that they gain capacity to protect not only themselves but also their community.

During this journey, the project members will come to internalize the central theme, ‘The Act of Empowering From Within’.
