AFESIP is a non-governmental, non-partisan, and non-religious organization established at the grass-root level in Cambodia in 1996. The dire situations of thousands of victims forced into sex slavery are the reasons why AFESIP exists today. We are devoted to “humanly correct development” to fight against the trafficking of women and children for sex slavery.

AFESIP cares for those victimized of trafficking and sex slavery. The success criteria have been, first and foremost, securing victim’s rights by providing holistic care through a victim centered approach with long term goals of successful and permanent rehabilitation and reintegration.

The “humanly correct development” is defined as “conforming to the most fundamental rights; those applicable anytime, anywhere, and to any persons in peace as in war time, freely contracted by any country of the world” [UN civil and political rights pact, article 6; right to live, article 7; forbidding of torture, article 8; forbidding of slavery, article 11; forbidding of unfair detention].
