Breaking Out of the Trafficking Trap
My father died further impoverishing our family, and, the youngest of 4 children, I left school after Grade 3. I am now 16 years old and for a long time have worked as a laborer on Thai farms.
I happened to meet the SMART staff and was very interested in becoming a peer educator. Later I went to a mushroom farming training at CWCC; dedicating myself fully to the training I was successful and graduated with a 100 USD grant to start my business.
The first harvest was successful due to the rainy season, but the second and third were not and I was really disappointed. But I haven’t given up; I am going to try different methods and I hope to be able to earn more money and help my family.
