In 2007, our founder Deborah Agustoni, took a trip to Cambodia that changed her life.
While traveling through the Siem Reap Province, the extreme poverty in the rural communities commanded her attention. With no hope for employment, people in the community fell prey to human trafficking at an alarming rate.
The devastation of this horrifying reality was clear, and Deborah returned home forever changed. She could not forget the tragic stories of human trafficking and the faces of those who had suffered. From her anguish emerged a fiery desire to empower those who have been made to feel powerless. She knew she would dedicate her life to eliminating human trafficking.
