Strengths


Focus on the worst cases


Benefiting from built-up trust, we intervene in inextricable conditions where victims have no other possibility to reach protection services.

AAT is innovative


“I am a Khamu ethnic from Laos. I escaped from my house when I learned I was married to a Chinese man. AAT picked me up and found me a job to help support my family.”

We develop pioneer actions to respond to the new situation that have no response like forced marriage.

AAT covers the full process


Our agents of change report to us on cases of victims that we rescue from sexual exploitation. We prosecute offenders, we empower the new rescued victims to be agents of change and economically independent.

We work without borders


The AAT working management is located in Bangkok and then extended in any province or countries as a flexible presence according to the needs of the victims

Principles and Ethics


RESPECT DIGNITY INTEGRITY


 

  • We respect the privacy rights of survivors. AAT does not publish personal details, photos or sensitive information relating to an individual, or ongoing cases of victimisation.
  • We are compassionate, not pitying. Our purpose is to provide support to survivors and those at risk – we do not benefit from exploiting sad stories.
  • We are thankful for your support, and request that you respect our beneficiaries in the same way we do. Please do not request visits to see the survivors, kindly respect their dignity and privacy, and help us to empower them.
  • We work with integrity. We will not in any way participate in exploitation. We do not undertake investigative activities that include exploiting victims. Our staff do not tolerate any form of sexual exploitation, including outside of working hours.
  • We believe in equality; fair treatment for everyone, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual-orientation, religion. Our stance on this is simple; we do not tolerate discrimination in any form for any reason. Whilst we do not support prostitution in any way, we do not endure prejudice towards women who are or have been involved in it.
  • We are honest. We don’t create false hope or empty promises. We aim to be realistic when discussing what we are capable of delivering in terms of working with our beneficiaries, with our partners and with donors.
  • We aim to be relevant. There is much media coverage concerning trafficking, and it is in our interest to share information that we feel is reliable and trustworthy.
  • We are united. We are proud to collaborate with other organisations, with governments and authorities, with donors and sponsors. Our priority is, and always will be, the best outcome for the women and children we work with.
  • We aim to become redundant. Here at AAT we work with local people, government agencies and organisations in the best interests of the women and children we assist. We believe that legal and social protection mechanisms should be locally led, and any NGO support should aim to be temporary and to transfer responsibilities to local people, authorities and groups so they can take over the work and make it sustainable.
