About the Somaly Mam Foundation

Two to four million young women and children will be sold into prostitution within the next 12 months. Many of these children are sold into sexual slavery for as little as $10 and some are as young as 5-years old in a multi-billion dollar industry. These victims are subject to rape, torture, forced abortions, starvation and even threats to family members. Many will die of AIDS. This is a reality that exists throughout the world.

The Somaly Mam Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit public charity committed to ending slavery. With the vision and leadership of world renowned Cambodian activist, Somaly Mam, the foundation focuses on eradicating the root of human trafficking, exemplifying a global vision and dedication that will allow its work in the United States and South East Asia to expand to other countries around the world.

Vision: A world where human trafficking does not exist.
