THE STORY:

Somaly Mam Foundation wrote -

We believe that sex slavery is intolerable, a global crisis against humanity, and it must be stopped. For the past two decades, Cambodian survivor and activist Somaly Mam has been leading the fight to end it.  

We believe in a multilateral approach: calling on individuals, organizations, and key decision makers in government are all absolutely vital in improving the lives of women and girls worldwide. By working together with the 2013 RaiseForWomen Challenge, we are able to raise awareness and understanding of the complex issue of human trafficking, assist victims, prosecute perpetrators, prevent future cases, and reduce stigmas that surround the survivors.

Rebuilding lives and tackling the root causes of the problem requires patience, understanding, and resources. Somaly's approach has always been one by one, drop by drop, life by life, and she is living proof that change can start with just one. By donating now, you are helping us bring more women and girls through a path to freedom, and changing the lives of hundreds of survivors in Southeast Asia.
