Free the Slaves, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending slavery worldwide, has entered a partnership with the Chab Dai Coalition of Cambodia. Chab Dai Coalition is an alliance of organizations working together to end human trafficking in the country. This announcement marks an important milestone in the fight against modern-day slavery. It helps shed light on these issues and bring resources to those in need, but it will serve as a reminder that there are people out there who care and are willing to take action.
What the Partnership Entails
Through this partnership between Chab Dai Coalition and Free the Slaves, both organizations can provide more resources and support for their mission to end human trafficking in Cambodia. The partnership will also result in more education about the problem of human trafficking. Through awareness campaigns, research, and capacity building among local stakeholders, it aims to educate more people about what is happening in countries like Cambodia and what they can do to help, especially among local stakeholders and neighboring countries. Additionally, Free the Slaves will use its platforms and global network of partners to provide various forms of support to the Chab Dai coalition to work on challenges inflicted by modern-day slavery in the country.
“We are ecstatic to announce this incredible partnership between Free the Slaves and Chab Dai Coalition in Cambodia! Both organizations are committed to raising awareness about human trafficking and modern-day slavery. This partnership will allow us to join forces and create tangible impacts in the country. Together, I cannot wait to see the successes that emerge from this collective passion.” – Kuldeep Singh Chauhan – Asia Regional Director, Free the Slaves.
Human Trafficking In Cambodia
Cambodia is one of many countries that has become a hotspot for human trafficking over recent years due to its location near some of Asia’s most economically advanced nations and the contrasting poverty within its borders. Unfortunately, this makes it easy for traffickers to target vulnerable individuals who may be desperate for work or money. Additionally, corruption within local governments makes it difficult for authorities to address these issues effectively. These factors make it even more critical that organizations like Chab Dai Coalition and Free the Slaves are willing to step up and take action against this injustice.
“Chab Dai Coalition is excited to join hands with FTS to combat HT and modern slavery. Chab Dai believes collaboration is the key to building momentum to eradicate trafficking. This partnership will reflect our name and core value and the dynamic and diversified partners across the globe. Chab Dai and FTS cannot wait to see our joint hands to action and tangible outcomes through our sound and committed collaboration.” Dy Noeut, National Director of Chab Dai Coalition, Cambodia.
No matter how daunting the task may seem, the partnership between Free the Slaves and Chab Dai Coalition proves that change is possible when we come together with a shared goal. With hard work and dedication from both organizations, this partnership shows great promise in bringing more hope in combatting modern slavery and creating a brighter future for all those affected by modern-day slavery throughout Cambodia and the region.
