    Serey was 13 when her freedom was stolen. Tricked by a cousin, Serey was forced to work in a brothel for almost 3 years before being rescued. She was brought to Abolition International's Dream Home in Cambodia where she received protection, trauma counseling, medical attention, education, and time and space to come alive again. While at the Dream Home, Serey discovered she had a passion for cooking. She attended culinary school, where she learned to become an accomplished chef. Now she works in a high-end hotel restaurant in Phnom Penh and is living on her own, independent and free. Serey's (pronounced 'sir-ray') story is based on a true account from Abolition's Dream Home in Cambodia. The Dream Home is an established safe home in Cambodia for young girls rescued from sex trafficking. It isn’t just a safe place for girls rescued from trafficking, it’s a home where they can learn to dream again. Learn more at http://www.abolitioninternational.org

      Produced by: Kent Truog and Alison Fahey Directed and Edited by: Kent Truog Music by: Robbie Reider Special Thanks to: Steve Moorish and SISHA, the Transitions Global staff, and especially Chang Liya for her courage and her voice. This video was shot in late 2010 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to tell the updated story of Chang Liya. Liya had done an early video in 2008, which was too emotionally heavy for public viewing. Since she first told her story in 2008, Liya has become a fully certified yoga instructor and has been to the United States, where she had the opportunity to speak to audiences about her journey in New York, Florida, Colorado, and Ohio. This video also captured the core principles that have made the Transitions Global program such a huge success.

      • Cambodia: Srey Neth

        Srey Neth is a young Cambodian victim of human trafficking. In this story she speaks of her experience transitioning from victim to survivor. At 14 she was sold by her mother to a pimp for $300; a week later he sold her virginity for the same price then he forced her to serve 10-20 men per night afterwards. Her refusal was met with beatings or electrocution. Srey Neth was later rescued by police and a non governmental organization. During her recovery, which unsurprisingly has taken more than five years, she was diagnosed with HIV. This is not just a story about the darkness in humanity. Srey Neth is a victim who has found her voice and become a survivor; I see her as a figurative Cambodia, her home country. It is culturally permissive of human trafficking after struggling through thirty years of genocide, occupation, and civil war. From a trauma and victimization standpoint, Cambodian society is still finding the voice it needs to end the exploitation. Srey Neth has been given guidance and the opportunity to find her own path. She has learned forgiveness, found self worth, received an education, worked hard to succeed, and been given life through anti-retroviral drugs. Many in Cambodia do not have this option; Srey Neth knows this and hopes that her story of pain and healing can help. It is why she is now working in the same slum where she was sold, to help the younger children find their voice and avoid the victimization she faced. Her story is one of hope and an example for those working in the field of anti-human trafficking. Her story is also a parallel to my incomplete project on the transition Cambodia, the country, is making from victim to survivor. Music: "Go Slow," by ndcv "Potts," by ndcv

          • Transitions Global - What Are We About?

            Produced/Directed/Filmed/Graphics/Edited by: Elizabeth Fischer 2011 Music by: Alexi Murdoch "Orange Sky" (used by permission) Thank you to Nettwerk Music Group and Alexi for their generosity. This video was created from a concept developed by Elizabeth Fischer, in keeping with a booklet designed for Transitions Global in late 2010. The idea was to consolidate the concept of Transitions Global into a short three and a half minute video. Originally, the video was to include an interview with a survivor, but due to time, the interviews will appear elsewhere in Transitions' videos. The song "Orange Sky" epitomizes everything Transitions stands for - we do what we do, because we would do the same thing for our own daughters, sisters, and friends...'I had a dream, I stood beneath an orange sky, with my sister standing by' - may we all be standing by to act on behalf of the vulnerable.

This video is one of many films being used to help inspire others to action! Check out more films on our website. www.jointhelights.org Transitions Global works to provide holistic aftercare for sex-trafficking survivors. To find out more go to transitionsglobal.org Synopsis Sex-trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry that exploits millions of young girls around the world, and survivors often suffer from physical and psychological trauma. In Rescue is Not Enough, we follow a young girl who has recently been rescued from trafficking as she is welcomed into Transitions’ aftercare and makes her way through the program. Please note: An actress portrays the survivor in this film in order to protect the identities of actual trafficking victims. Partner Transitions Global works in Phnom Penh, Cambodia to provide comprehensive restorative aftercare for girls rescued from sex trafficking. Transitions approaches the care of trauma victims with the mentality that while the journey to recovery begins with physical freedom, true freedom from past exploitation requires emotional healing as well as genuine hope for a better future. As such, every girl at Transitions receives individual therapeutic care and is provided with opportunities for her future. Purpose Transitions Global founder, James Pond, often speaks at large conferences and forums on human trafficking. Rescue is Not Enough provides him and the organization with a tool to visually and concisely show the value in the Transitions’ approach to aftercare. In addition, Transitions will be able to use this film as they continue to fundraise, and as they advocate the growth of effective aftercare programs around the world.
