Since our Thrive Home opened in 2013, prevention education in their area has been a top priority in addition to our standard wrap-around restorative care.
In the local schools, our team trains teachers and students to recognize exploits that traffickers use to manipulate their victims. Our prevention program equips students with the tools and awareness they need to avoid the snares of traffickers.
Both boys and girls as young as 2 years old are being cared for in this home. They are not only surviving, but thriving!
About Trafficking In Thailand
There are an estimated 3-4 million slaves in Thailand today. Thailand has been rated a Tier 2 Watchlist nation for human trafficking from the US State Department, one step above the Tier 3 rating for countries with the worst human-trafficking records.
Lucy, an innocent child, trusted that a family friend would always be a safe person to have around. He gained Lucy’s trust by treating her well – at first – and she never questioned his intentions. However, he wasn’t the kind man she thought he was.
He manipulated Lucy and began selling her for profit. He sold her to man after man and threatened to beat her if she ever told anyone. Lucy lost a part of her sweet spirit each time she was violently abused. She felt like she would never know freedom again. Every night, Lucy wished for someone to know the truth and save her from the darkness surrounding her.
Thankfully, YOU stepped in to bring freedom to Lucy from the daily abuse she endured. Working with local authorities, Lucy was spared from a life of pain and bravely told the truth of what happened. Because of her courage, the perpetrator is now in jail for trafficking.
Finally, Lucy rests peacefully in our Thrive Home knowing that he will never harm her again, and her spirit is beginning to strengthen once again. And as she begins her restoration journey in the safety of our home, YOUR support makes it possible for us to provide the medical care, trauma therapy, and individualized education plan Lucy desperately needs to move forward.
