My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The Freedom Story, Oakland, CA, USA
After I sold my small business I wanted to do something to give back. Years...decades ago I had done a thesis on the sex tourism industry in Thailand and I wanted to volunteer with an organization that did work in Asia to help girls and boys stay out and/or get out of being prostituted. I interviewed with 6 or more NGOs and visited all of them. I settled on The Sold Project for several reasons. First, sold is constantly evolving and improving their prevention strategies in order to help as many children as possible. Additionally, most of the staff is Thai and are better positioned to understand and help Thai children. Sold is also not afraid to bring new strategies to prevention such as therapy and counseling services. Sold's success is validated in its numbers....a drop out rate that went from over 50% to less than 7%.
