VOTB Charity Concert

In Kenya, it is believed that having sex with a virgin will cure HIV/AIDS…(ECPAT International, 2007) This myth and practice has favoured the trafficking of young girls to major child sex tourist destinations.

Come join us and Artful Vandelays to raise our voices against sex trafficking in Toronto on May 25th at The Central. 603 Markham Street.

National Human Trafficking Awareness Day

Today is the National Human Trafficking Awareness Day in the US. I had started this blog back in 2011 after being seeing for the first time the video below. Before that day, I had never heard of sex trafficking or even thought of what human trafficking was. Me being part Cambodian, this particular video definitely struck a nerve.

Please check it out and know that this horror is not just happening in Asia. It’s occurring right in our own backyards here in North America.

If you are moved by this, please LIKE our Facebook page to learn more and see what you can do.

No Words…Pictures are Enough…

Here’s a video that doesn’t need words to explain the horrors of what young girls go through in the sex trafficking industry. In some countries, girls as young as 6 – 8 years old are forced to service up to 40 men a day and threatened on a daily basis that not only will they be beaten if they don’t comply, but that their own families will be killed even though there are in a country far far away. Scars heal, but it’s the psychological control, fear and torture that really suck the life out of these young girls.

They need our help. What will YOU do? Send us an email if you’d like to start volunteering with us or the organization highlighted in the video. Thank you.

In Her Shoes

The Journey

We weren’t able to embed the video here, so please click on the link below and watch the most touching, frightening yet gripping short film on sex trafficking we’ve ever seen.

Actor and screenwriter Emma Thompson narrates this short film. She explains how rage fuelled her role as the voice of conscience in The Journey, Richard Jobson’s violent and powerful short film about the experiences of one sex worker.

Emma Thompson says “Chances are you’ll know somebody who pays for sex”.
