Save Girls from Trafficking

Item # 49422

Education transforms girls and women from victims to strong problem solvers, able to cope with their many daily challenges and create positive lasting changes for themselves and others.

Imagine you are a young girl in Shan State, northern Burma. Like most villagers in this vast, mountainous region bordering China, you're part of a marginalized ethnic minority. Your family and your community have been shattered by years of political strife and warfare. You live in one of the country's poorest states, a place where 2 out of 3 adults are illiterate and only 1 in 10 have attended school beyond the fourth grade. You are vulnerable.

Girls and women in Burma's impoverished border regions are the main victims of trafficking involving threats, slavery, sexual harassment, and abuse through domestic servitude, forced and bonded labor, commercial sexual exploitation, and the sale of "wives" to men in China.

How to create lasting improvement in the lives of these women and girls? How to prevent trafficking from happening in the first place? By bolstering their strengths and skills -- and changing the social context in which they live, learn, and work.

You can help. $25 supports a girl in Burma in school for an entire semester, including books and fees, helping to keep her safe from trafficking.


For more than 20 years, Partners Asia has been supporting community initiatives to improve the lives of the most vulnerable among the people of Burma. Partners Asia bridges the gap between Burma communities and global resources.
