Review for The SOLD Project, Pleasanton, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The SOLD Projects works to prevent children from being forced into prostitution or human trafficking situations. SOLD is a forward thinking organization that has studied the community in Thailand, identified at risk youth and how to keep them out of forced prostitution and trafficking ---- SOLD has learned that you can prevent children from being forced into prostitution by keeping them in school and educated. This model can be used in other areas of the world and hopefully, eventually, make a global impact on children. Prevention is the key.

Review for The SOLD Project, Pleasanton, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am an attorney and have been involved in advocacy work since I was 18. I met the founders of SOLD when they first started their mission. I was immediately drawn in not only by their incredible passion and forward thinking, but about how effective and efficient they were about tackling the issue of forced child prostitution. They spent so much time in Thailand understanding the sexual exploitation of these young kids in rural villages. They knew they wanted to make a difference and they were open minded to how to make that happen. They have learned one effective tool is through prevention - that is to educate these children so that they stay in school and get real jobs instead of going into prostitution. In a very short period of time, there was an entire village of children dreaming of what life could be beyond working in the rice fields or forced to prostitution. The SOLD project gave them their first chance to "dream" and have real goals, this was a first for these kids and now there is real change happening that SOLD can prove with statistics. This group is truly exceptional and has exceeded my expectations on all fronts. It's pretty incredible.
