Human trafficking and exploitation are one of the highest risks facing vulnerable children in Asia. Millions of children are being trafficked into sex exploitation and forced labour each year. One in nine girls in the region will marry before they turn 15.
There are lots of factors working together keeping gender based violence and discrimination alive – cultural norms, economic demands, and poverty.
We work with communities, families, faith leaders and government to protect the most vulnerable and to turn the tide of gender inequality that leads to violent and harmful practices.
