prevention projects

Before the program, we were not connected at all. Since we started six months ago, we are now united as one family.

Prevention Education

We raise awareness about the different faces of trafficking and exploitation, and use school, youth and community seminars to train on:

  • human rights

  • healthy sexuality

  • the dangers of pornography and its link to trafficking

  • child protection

Our prevention education is focused on equipping leaders and influencers with a message that is transferable and addresses both the supply and demand drivers of human trafficking.

Resilient Families

Our Resilient Families project equips at-risk families to thrive and remain together through an 18-month intensive mentorship, holistic wellness, economic freedom (small-scale entrepreneurship) and training program.

We believe that both brokenness and wholeness stem from a family’s health, so we are working to bring redemption and restoration to families in Thailand.

Roots

Our stepped prevention training and mentorship program for high school and college students addresses the roots of trafficking in a cohesive, timely and applicable curriculum.

This program explores the values that drive behavior in order to empower young people to stand against trafficking by valuing their own lives and the lives of others.

It is important for youth to know they are powerful to make good choices and that they have the ability to break cycles of poverty, trauma, abuse, addiction and brokenness. It is not enough for them to just say no to trafficking. They must understand their beliefs and how those beliefs affect their choices and the people around them in order to protect themselves and advocate for change in their generation.

RESTORATION PROJECTS

At first it was hard to picture God, but then I learned to see God with me all the time and to see the way he heals my heart. It gave me peace; a different feeling than just changing my own thoughts and trying to be strong or healing myself but knowing my value and the value of life and freedom.
— Trafficking Survivor in our Reconnect Project

In all of our holistic care programs, we address survivors’ unique needs by working alongside families to advocate for healing from trauma and by equipping survivors for life within the larger society. Our programs incorporate love, provision, counseling, discipleship, empowerment, life skill development and education for both survivors and their family members.

We take a phased approach to walking with those in need of healing, moving survivors through clearly defined benchmarks toward healthy functioning and reintegration.

Reconnect

In our reintegration program, we empower trafficking survivors through counseling, case management support, life skills training, occupational support, and scholarships.

This stage is pivotal as survivors transition into society; going to school, beginning a career, learning to live safely and growing in relationships as part of a community after coming out of exploitative situations or time at aftercare facilities.

Restore

After six years of serving male trafficking survivors in our aftercare restoration home, we have transitioned to a community restoration model. We walk with survivors and support them within their community and families of origin to see healing and wholeness come to the whole community. 

We holistically restore survivors of sexual abuse, human trafficking, and exploitation through counseling, case management support, therapy, training, life skills, and advocacy. We equip those in their circle of support—caregivers, teachers, pastors, employers, and community workers—with the trauma healing tools they need to support the survivors and in turn bring healing to others.

Renew

Within our Holistic Care program, we offer counseling and mentorship for trauma survivors in order to facilitate healing and wholeness. We offer training and develop resources for community leaders; heightening the awareness and equipping those in positions of influence with a trauma-informed toolkit and lay counseling skills.

Rekindle

Knowing that marriages are the cornerstone of families and families are the foundation for society, we run a year-long marriage enrichment program with a cohort of couples, equipping them with the foundations of healthy marriages through training, accountability, experiential activities, a learning community and resources.


“Healing is a process that includes the mind, body, soul and spirit being set free.”

We want to see redemption and restoration come to families in Thailand.  We pray that God will “turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the hearts of the children to their fathers” (Malachi 4:6). From the very beginning, God purposely designed the family (Genesis 2). It is through this vehicle that we learn to love and trust; and it is our mission to encourage mothers and fathers in Thailand to love their families in word and action.  Furthermore, we want many strong, transformed families arise to bring in the hurting, exploited and the oppressed and become havens of healing.

“We have found that attachment enables restoration because trust forms the foundation on which one learns to give and receive love.”

We believe that Anti-trafficking work is not just an NGO-thing.  We are empowering nationals to create healing communities where churches, families, businesses, schools, medical providers identify and connect with those in need. All sectors of society must understand trauma, its affects and have access to tools and resources that will promote safety, healing and wholeness. 


PRAYER PROJECTS

We are God’s warriors, joining with Him in the spiritual battle against injustice. Really, God already has the victory, we are partnering with Him, and it’s His power that is changing us and the world through our prayers.
— Nitaya, HR Manager

Up & Out

Since trafficking is a spiritual issue, we address trafficking and its contributing factors strategically through prayer and worship. Collectively and individually, we exalt the God of Justice and partner with Him to see His justice come.

UPWARD
We are committed to prayer simply because we love Jesus. This vertical dialogue of prayer is how we connect with Him, are daily filled and renewed, and express our love and devotion to Him. As we fight for the exploited and walk with the traumatized, prayer is also the safe place that sustains us, encourages us and propels us into the darkness with hope and expectation. 

Our team joins together for corporate worship and devotions two times a week, as well as spending personal time alone in prayer in our prayer room. 

OUTWARD
We are committed to prayer, knowing it is one of God’s primary strategies for releasing justice in the earth (Luke 18). As we intercede in prayer, we partner with God’s heart and tap into His power that transforms hearts and brings justice to the nations. Our physical reach may be limited, but in prayer we have the ability to impact any and every situation. 

We intentionally pray for each of the programs, projects and cases within our organization and also serve as a prayer partner for many in the community. In addition, we strive to mobilize prayer in the community knowing that prayer brings revival, and revival brings justice. Each week we host a community prayer meeting to unite with others in prayer for the issues surrounding human trafficking and injustice.
