Direct field actions to protect Southeast Asian women and children from sexual exploitation
While many people are familiar with AAT only for rescue operations, in reality, actions of AAT cover the full process (Prevention, Protection, Assistance, and Return of the Victim) to combat sexual trafficking and exploitation in a sustainable fashion. Below is the image of a full AAT Program Cycle:
ในขณะที่หลายๆคนอาจจะได้ยินชื่อของเอเอทีบ่อยๆในการทำงานช่วยเหลือผู้หญิงในกรณีเร่งด่วนเท่านั้น จริงๆแล้ว การทำงานของเรา ครอบคลุมทุกกระบวนการทำงานโดยมุ่งเน้นหลักสหวิชาชีพ เริ่มจากการป้องกัน สู่การคุ้มครองผู้เสียหาย งานช่วยเหลือ งานส่งกลับ จนกระทั่งพัฒนาศักยภาพให้ผู้เสียหายสามารถช่วยผู้อื่นได้

Children don't wake up one morning and decide they'll be prostitutes..... They're forced into it. เด็กๆไม่ได้ตื่นขึ้นมาในรุ่งเช้าวันหนึ่งเพื่อตัดสินใจที่จะเป็นผู้หญิงขายบริการทางเพศ..... พวกเด็กๆเหล่านั้นถูกบังคับให้เข้าสู่วังวนแห่งการค้ามนุษย์ต่างหาก

ร่วมกันยื่นหนังสือถึง คสช ที่ทำเนียบรัฐบาล เรื่อง "ส่วย" จุดอ่อนของการแก้ไขปัญหาการค้ามนุษย์ในประเทศไทย โดย องค์กรต่อต้านการค้ามนุษย์: มูลนิธิเครือข่ายส่งเสริมคุณภาพชีวิตแรงงาน มูลนิธิพิทักษ์สตรี มูลนิธิเพื่อการพัฒนาเด็ก และ มูลนิธิเพื่อนหญิง
The letters addressed directly to NCPO chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha were filed to raise concerns over corruption and bribery, especially as related to government agencies and stakeholders that are supposed to deal directly with combat human trafficking in Thailand.
The letters were drafted to reflect the direct experiences. It was circulated between several civil organizations that work for the rights of women, children, and laborers in Thailand to comment on before being developed into a final draft for submission.
A brief press conference for this action was also held inside the government house.

Vietnam: 33 DAYS AS VICTIMS OF TRAFFICKING
July 2, 2014: Vietnamese Newspaper interview 2 victims rescued and repatriated by AAT Vietnam and network.
The article is in Vietnamese but you can use Google translate to read it. (not so good but readable)
#AAT #Thailand Since 2013, AAT has been building a network in Shan State (Myanmar), in response to the high number of victims of human trafficking from the area. #Shan State is one of the states that have suffered a long-lasting armed conflict between local troops and the Burmese military, and many people migrate to neighboring Thailand in search of better opportunities.
Last month, a workshop on #humantrafficking and gender equality was held for 20 young women and men, including 4 Buddhist monks, who will participate in AAT’s efforts to stop the widespread trafficking of girls and young women from Shan State to Thailand for sexual exploitation.
