Many children in Thailand and Myanmar live in remote rural villages with limited access to education. Poverty, unemployment, and statelessness are systemic issues that lead to formal education ending in 6th grade for nearly 50% of Thai and Burmese children. As a result, these children are highly vulnerable to human trafficking.
Paladin’s Scholarship Program is specifically designed to keep children in school. This is the most important preventative factor for mitigating their risk of being trafficked into the sex and labor industries.
Paladin business enterprises are for-profit businesses providing legitimate and sustainable employment to both at-risk and rescued human trafficking victims. Each business has its own unique structure and is licensed by the government of Thailand as a Thai corporation.
