10 Years Anniversary Celebration of AAT & A Discussion Panel

Jul 8, 14 • newsComments Off on 10 Years Anniversary Celebration of AAT & A Discussion Panel

After a decade of hands-on experience and direct action in the field to protect the women and children of Southeast Asian from sexual exploitation, Alliance Anti-Traffic (AAT) has provided protection and support, such as career alternatives, to more than 3,000 women and children who have been victims of trafficking.  Reflecting directly from such experience, AAT is aware that in order to combat the issue of the trafficking of women and children successfully, we need the participation and concrete collaboration, as well as action from all sectors. Knowledge and experience sharing with, as well as learning together from stakeholders are all valuable to AAT in order to serve women and children better in the future.   Therefore, we decided to celebrate our 10th years by organizing a discussion panel on Toward ASEAN Integration: Alternative Solutions for Combating Trafficking of Women and Children in the Region, in order to gain insights into the best practices and best actions that will improve the efficiency and readiness toward integration into the ASEAN community.

Below  is a series of photos of the event. It was convened on 20 June 2014, at the Student Christian Center, Bangkok.  There were more participants attended the event more than what we have expected. For a small organization like AAT, this event is considered a success and as a big step for us. Special thanks to speakers and moderator for their contributions to the success.

Last but not least, we formally and most sincerely thank you for all your wishes, supports, and for celebrating the 10th year Anniversary with us!
