The SOLD Project believes education is key to preventing child exploitation, understanding the need for research and the value of data to ensure their programs are effective. Research has shown us millions of people are enslaved worldwide, and it can help us prevent this reality for millions more.
Thanks to 34 members of ENDCrowd and one generous matching sponsor, Republic Wireless, The SOLD Project has fully funded an evaluation project to uncover how their programs are impacting children and communities in Thailand. They exceeded their fundraising goal of $10,000 in just 90 days.
As of March 2015, the research team is interviewing organizations around Thailand and doing statistical research on the topic of prevention. Additionally, the team has been busy performing group studies with The SOLD Project’s Thai students. Within the next year, The SOLD Project will be able to update their programs in order to continue to prevent millions of from being trafficked.
