I started at this organization as a volunteer, then staff member, and now proud Board Member. My commitment to this organization wouldn't have spanned over 5 years and counting if I didn't truly believe in the impact PALS is having in communities in Viet Nam, particularly in the lives of young women and girls. I've been able to witness firsthand how PALS approaches their work through an empowerment framework working directly with girls, families, and communities to give them agency to improve their own lives. This is evident in their ADAPT, anti-human trafficking project at Viet Nam's borders with Cambodia and China. ADAPT employs a comprehensive model of prevention, reintegration, and capacity building services that supports girls to persevere and realize their full potential. PALS is the reason I believe international development can happen at the very grassroots level, which too few NGOs can claim.
