The Exodus Road’s ALPHA team in Thailand worked with law enforcement to stop the exploitation of 6 girls, arresting their traffickers in two separate operations.
In Operation Tuition, AAT found a social media post saying, “Student is looking for tuition fee, if someone interesting please let us know.” They suspected this might be a cover for human trafficking, so they reached out to The Exodus Road’s ALPHA team for support in investigating.
ALPHA team gathered evidence that this was, indeed, a trafficker operating on social media. They worked with Thai law enforcement and AAT to plan a raid, in which one 15-year-old girl and one 16-year-old girl were removed from their traffickers.
The girls had been deceived by false job promises and trapped into sex work. Social workers from AAT were present to offer care and support, and the girls are now in a government aftercare home. One trafficker was arrested and faces 6 to 15 years in prison, if convicted.
Thank you for your support in the fight for freedom and justice for these girls!
