Children on this site are neither victims of trafficking nor sexual exploitation. These are AAT community ambassadors. They and their parents signed a consent form for the use of photographs.
Since 2001, AAT combat and prevent sexual exploitation & abuse, help and empower women and children in Southeast Asia.
As long as we remember we share one future,
we will survive.
We empower vulnerable communities about the risk of illegal trade and dealings involving children and women with a holistic project including preventive actions and direct support for victims.
We restore the hope of our beneficiaries thanks to the build-up of a chain of solidarity among all persons involved in our program
"The world will not be destroyed by those who do the evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything"
We must provide them with preventive education and protection.
They become easy prey for prostitution and trafficking networks.
The school is expensive.
Many girls leave school for a paid work to help their families.
Community-based prevention education can drastically reduce the risk of sexual abuse of children.
AAT organizes their rescue, their repatriation to their original country, their reintegration on the community, offers services and follows up.
Peer educators of the outreach team visit red light areas and meet women involved in prostitution everyday to propose services. A Hotline is available in Vietnam, Thailand and Laos.
We educate children at schools and in the community against the risk of sexual abuse, exploitation, human trafficking and other social harms.
We protect women and girls identified at risk.
We work with government to advocate for better laws and regulations for the building of a sustainable society.
We promote positive attitude on gender issues and human rights through education campaigns in schools and in the communities.
You are called to do something BIG. Say YES and HELP US to transform lives, to offer security, happiness and hope for children and women.
I am and my sibling want to express our deepest gratitude for everything you have done for us. Now we live with our welcome family in USA. My 3 children are well in school. I want someday to do the same with other people needing help as you do for us. I know I can never repay for what you have done for us. Please accept our deepest gratitude from the bottom of our hearts.
“AAT has abundant knowledge on the factors that render women vulnerable to exploitation, the modus operandi of their exploiters, the behaviours of the consumers, the political issues influencing policies and actions and the general mentality of the populations towards these issues and its impact on women’s rehabilitation needs. Few organisations can match this length or breadth of experience.”
“What AAT did in such a short time is amazing”.
