Transitions Cambodia Is Not Just In Cambodia

When most people hear the name Transitions Cambodia, it is easy to assume that we work in Cambodia. Fair enough. But, we are doing work in many other places to combat human trafficking.

We have not put these 'new' projects on the website for a number of reasons. First, we are working on projects in Indonesia, Mexico, Greece, and Romania with other organizations. These projects will not necessarily have the Transitions Cambodia name on them.

Rather, these projects will be transitional care facilities that have the same programs and components that we use to care for and restore victims in Southeast Asia. We are working with other organizations to make services to victims available and relevant. This is a long process that requires a lot of work.

Second, these additional projects have security concerns, as well as, integrity to wait until there is something tangible to talk about. Transitions Cambodia is honored to have been asked to help replicate our model in other places in the world. We will keep you up to date on our progress through our newsletter what is happening.

Not to sound overly cryptic, but Transitions Cambodia is also expanding its work to the United States. One of the most relevant human trafficking fields is in America and we are responding to the need of US victims of human trafficking. We will be releasing information in July or August about our work in the United States, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, Transitions Cambodia continues to evolve and mature - our desire is to combat human trafficking and meet the needs of victims globally. We are constantly striving to improve what we do and how we do it. If you are interested in following our work, please sign up for our newsletter on the website or e-mail me and I will make sure you are included on any upcoming correspondence.
