Speak Up

Description

Buavanh, 14, makes an anti-trafficking presentation to a World Vision children’s club in Laos.

Buavanh’s aunt and uncle were tricked into working abroad illegally and were not paid. She almost fell for a similar scheme, but has learned to protect herself from traffickers.

“Before I joined the children’s club, I didn’t know what human trafficking was. I used to think that it was good that people were helping us to find work so that we can earn some money and help our family,” says Buavanh.

“I have learned about safe migration, different forms of human trafficking, and how brokers can trick you with tales of a high salary, paying money in advance to your family, and preparing the necessary travel documents,” she says.

World Vision runs children’s clubs in 20 villages in Laos. The clubs are attended by 325 young people. Each club holds one session a week over eight months. The purpose of the clubs is for young people and children to learn life skills relating to safe migration and how to protect themselves from human trafficking.

Please pray that children around the world will be protected from all forms of abuse and exploitation.
