Agape International Missions (AIM), is an anti-trafficking organization fighting child sex trafficking in Cambodia.
AIM's mission: To rescue, restore and reintegrate survivors of sex trafficking through Christ’s love and Gospel. To prevent sexual slavery by planting and equipping the Church to do the same in vulnerable and exploited communities worldwide.
Defeating a complex, decentralized problem like child sex trafficking requires a holistic strategy that involves survivors, law enforcement and the community. AIM's programs PREVENT sex trafficking, and work to RESCUE, RESTORE and REINTEGRATE survivors of this horrible crime. Through this approach, AIM is committed to lifelong and community-wide transformation that is effective and lasting.
Since 2005, Agape International Missions has fought sex trafficking in Cambodia. Now, with 12 projects on the ground that impact over 10,000 people every year, AIM programs are stopping the cycle of exploitation.
Each program has evolved out of a need AIM saw while working on the ground in Cambodia, and each program contributes to the success of the others. One of those programs is the AIM Employment Center. The AIM Employment Center (AEC) is an exciting program that offers rescued young women a career and a new life. After being rescued from sex trafficking and given time and support to recover, AEC equips women with the skills needed to gain employment and build a stable life. In addition to giving restored young women a job, AIM Employment Center can offer an immediate rescue to those still trapped in brothels with no opportunity for income, no way to care for children and pressure to raise money for family. They can walk into AEC and receive on-the-job training, access to free childcare, healthcare, continuing academic education and counseling and be paid well above average. While average wages for a garment worker in Cambodia are around $50/month, women at AEC earn 3-4 times as much, making between $150-200/month.
