Chab Dai is at the forefront of raising the standards of advocacy, prevention and care for individuals and communities affected by human trafficking and exploitation.

 

Our Ethos

Collaboration is at the heart of what we do. We operate as a “learning community” because this recognizes the limitations of individuals and organizations working in isolation. Due to our collaborative ethos and foundation as a coalition, Chab Dai can map emerging good practices and patterns of trafficking and exploitation at macro-, meso-, and grassroots levels more so than organizations who work on their own.

Our VISION

Chab Dai (which means "joining hands" in Khmer) was founded in Cambodia in 2005. Our vision is to see individuals, organizations and agencies work together toward addressing human trafficking and exploitation, built upon the Biblical framework of working together as the body of Christ, in addition to frameworks for basic human rights. Our vision has moved beyond our work in Cambodia as we now work with coalitions and partners in over 20 countries.


Our agency would not exist if it weren’t for the constant support and encouragement from Chab Dai. Our clients, women who are facing severe crisis, would not receive the care they deserve.”
— Founder, Organization Member in Cambodia

CORE VALUES

KNOWLEDGE FOR SHARING
We are committed to addressing issues of abuse, exploitation and trafficking by working together and providing opportunities for learning.

ADVOCACY FOR JUSTICE
We believe partnership in coalition creates more collaboration for advocacy, and enables organizations to support one another more effectively.

SUPPORT FOR STRENGTH
Working together enables us to keep our individual identities while also acknowledging the broader issues we face as a whole.

HOPE FOR THE FUTURE
We exist so that families and communities at risk, and those who have been sexually abused, exploited or trafficked, can be all that God created them to be.
