Plane tickets, check. Passports, check. Typhoid shots, check. Camera crew, check!
This week, Abolition International’s marketing director, Sarah Hale, will lead a team of creative media aces to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to film the next installments of the To Be Free stories. The To Be Free campaign aims to raise $350,000 to expand much needed services to young victims locally and around the world.
During our time in Cambodia, we’ll be working with our partners and friends James and Athena Pond, who founded Transitions Global in 2006. The Ponds run the Dream Home, a holistic aftercare center where minors rescued from sex trafficking can heal from the trauma and build new lives.
While onsite, we will shoot short video stories that demonstrate how powerfully quality aftercare can restore the lives of young women devastated by exploitation. We are thrilled to be working with the guys at Rhetorik Creative in Franklin, Tenn. You can check them out at rhetorikcreative.com.
Stay tuned for updates from overseas! You can also follow us on Twitter at @abolitionintl.
