Needs Statement

The Daughter Project is an initiative that implements anti-human trafficking awareness, prevention, and intervention projects in Myanmar. We believe that the best measures of protection and defense against this atrocity are locally driven efforts beginning in homes, villages, schools, and communities by those most affected. These efforts have taken the form of Daughter Project Clubs that serve to mobilize citizens and equip them to protect, intercept and restore young girls at risk. We directly engage in the interception of young girls who are being trafficked and abused. The goal is to 'intervene' in that young girl's life and restore her to her family or guide her to a restoration shelter. Activities include alerting parents when girls stop attending school, children advocating for their peers, transit point monitoring, police rescue, and more.
