Siem Reap Coordinator (voluntary) - Cambodia

Free To Shine

Free To Shine believe children should be in schools, not brothels. So we identify girls at high risk of being targeted by traffickers, get her a uniform and a bike, fill a bag with books and pens, and visit her regularly to keep her in school and keep her safe. We are a humanitarian organisation founded in Australia who work in collaboration with communities and local governments in Cambodia so that girls can reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world. We equip with an education to prevent sex trafficking.
