Adopt a Village without regard to gender, age, ethnicity or political or religious association.

The “Adopt a Village” program launched with the Chiang Rai Area Development Project in 2006 in partnership with 9 hill-tribe communities in Chiang Rai province.

THE GOAL:

Tackling the root causes of human trafficking by strengthening the capacity of communities to be empowered, self sufficient and debt free through integrated rural community development.

-Mae Suai Distr. 6 villages

- Wiang Pa Pao Distr. 3 villages

Three Year Budget - 22,289,722 THB

Adopt a Village -Phase I


Rationale l.jpg
Rationale without regard to gender, age, ethnicity or political or religious association.

  • “Thai and hill tribe women and girls are trafficked to Japan, Malaysia, South Africa, Bahrain, Australia, Singapore, Europe, Canada and the United States for sexual and labor exploitation. Many women and girls are trafficked by international criminal syndicates. Many Thai are lured to Taiwan, Malaysia, the United States, and the Middle East by labor recruiting agencies and are forced into involuntary servitude because of the high debt owed to the agencies.”

    (2006 US Dept. of State Human Rights Report, 2007 US Dept. of State Trafficking in Persons Report – from www.humantafficking.org)

  • “..As a source country, the main cause is undoubtedly poverty, which makes people in certain parts of the country an easy target for human traffickers.” (Bangkok Post Sunday Oct 12. 2008)

Rationale17 l.jpg
Rationale without regard to gender, age, ethnicity or political or religious association.

  • “The internal traffic of Thai females consists mostly of 12-16 year olds from hill tribes of the North/ NorthEast. Most of the internally trafficked girls are sent to closed brothels, which operate under prison-like conditions.”

    (Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW) - Asia Pacific, Trafficking in Women and Prostitution in the Asia Pacific -from www.uri.edu/artsci/wms/hughes/thailand.htm)

Adopt a Village


Rationale18 l.jpg
Rationale without regard to gender, age, ethnicity or political or religious association.

  • ADRA Thailand is working in both the prevention and treatment of this de-humanising and community destroying problem.

  • The Keep Girls Safe project provides a shelter for girls that have been abused / are at high risk of abuse and trafficking, as well as community awareness raising of the issue.

  • Adopt a Village aims to change attitudes and reduce cycles of debt and poverty that result in children being sold as human traffic in the first place.
