Circle Tour 2018 - India & Thailand

Human trafficking continues to grow and devastate the lives of millions of people around the world. India is a source, destination, and transit country for human trafficking and has seen a rise of almost 25% in human trafficking in country in 2016; this accounts for approximately 20,000 women and children who were trafficked for sex or forced labor. In Thailand, it is estimated that approximately 60% of the country's gross national income is brought in by tourism, namely sex tourism. The need to fight human trafficking continues to be ever present. Continued efforts in legislation, ground work, treatment and intervention, and international policies are crucial to the eradication of this form of modern day slavery. In January and February of 2018, I will have the opportunity to travel to India and Thailand with Women at Risk International to continue efforts to fight human trafficking in that part of the world. I will have the opportunity to offer trauma trainings to clinicians working with survivors in current safehouse programs, meet with current partners for program planning, do outreach in the redlight districts of Bangkok, and begin preliminary field work for future research projects.I am asking that you join me in these efforts in whatever way you feel led - please raise awareness on this form of modern day slavery by sharing what you know with others, support me financially as I prepare for the work that needs to be done, pray for our team as we prepare for the difficult work that lies ahead, and commit to being a circle of protection to the people in your personal life.There is much work to be done and I am passionate about being a part of it; thank you for joining me in this effort!
