“Travel With Us” is a visual poem told through a compilation of documentary footage captured in urban and rural Thailand by The Freedom Story team in order to raise awareness for their work to prevent child prostitution.
The Freedom Story's Resource Center is a holistic education program designed to prevent child exploitation and empower communities for long-term change. We focus on keeping children out of Thailand’s infamous sex industry by keeping them in school through educational scholarships, and provide additional support (mentorship, awareness programs, and other resources) to them and their families through a community Resource Center.
The FREEDOM Story is located in the poverty-stricken villages of northern Thailand that are known as high-risk areas and sources for children who fall into prostitution. Children in these areas are often forced to drop out of school and sent to the city to work. Without proper education, their options are few and they are easily lured into the sex industry.
