Dear Friends, This year, we celebrated Pacific Links Foundations’ 10th Anniversary: A Decade of Empowering Women. Thanks to the dedication of our supporters, staff, volunteers and board members, we have been able to bring creative and grassroots solutions directly to the impoverished communities where we serve. The entrenched poverty that plagues our remote communities is complex and difficult to resolve. The threat of human trafficking looms larger than ever and Vietnam continues to be both a significant source and destination country in this human trade. Yet, we are confident that together, by steadfast commitment to improve these impoverished communities, we will be able to advocate for and mobilize greater resources to stop human trafficking. In the next five years, we aim to provide school-based and community-based comprehensive prevention solutions against human trafficking, especially in the border provinces of Vietnam. This year, we also launched our first Donor Drive to secure operational funding and expand our donor base. Your continued support will have more impact than ever before in making this vision a reality. Thank you for joining us in this journey to empower young girls and women and prevent the spread of human trafficking. We look forward to your continuing support in our next decade of service. In gratitude,

Diep Vuong President

about ADAPT

Scholarship recipients receiving uniforms, books and school supplies

Pacific Links Foundation (PALS) launched An Giang/Dong Thap Alliance for the Prevention of Trafficking (ADAPT) in 2005 to combat human trafficking starting in the Mekong Delta. In Vietnam, ADAPT operates in regions that are most vulnerable to human trafficking, in the South at the Vietnam-Cambodia border and in the North at the Vietnam-China border. Extreme poverty, high unemployment, and the porous nature of these borders render girls vulnerable to sexual and labor exploitation at the hands human traffickers. ADAPT leads counter-trafficking efforts at the frontiers of Vietnam by providing access to education, shelter and reintegration services, and enabling new economic opportunities.

SECURING A FUTURE Deep in the dusty countryside of the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam, Quynh* lives in a tiny shack with slanted blue doors and tin sheets nailed together to make gaping walls. Six years ago, Quynh’s father passed away from cancer leaving the family without any stable income. Her mother, who suffers from mental illness, is unable to work, and goes to beg for money at the market. Quynh’s older siblings have all moved to Ho Chi Minh City to pursue higher education but cannot send money home. This leaves Quynh, only 16 years of age, as the sole provider for her mother and herself. Quynh attends school every weekday. After school, she sells lottery tickets. On weekends, she tries to find work singing at weddings. And every summer, she goes up to the city alone to work in factories, restaurants - anywhere she can find work, sleeping on the floor if she must. These are dangerous circumstances for young girls such as At 16 years old, Quynh Quynh who are easy targets for robbery, is the sole provider for exploitation, and human trafficking.

her mother and herself...

The fact is that Quynh continues to go to school. Her education gives her a much stronger chance at finding stable higher-paying work after graduation and arms her with knowledge about human trafficking. Since 4 th grade, Quynh has been in ADAPT scholarship program that covers all of her public school fees, supplies, and provides support through home visits, Family Day, and Summer Camp. Without PALS, Quynh says she would have dropped out of school a long time ago. She is now in 10th grade, which is a major accomplishment given the extremely high dropout rates in the Mekong Delta. When asked what her dream is, she replies, “To graduate and find work where I don’t wake up each day worried about my family.” Then, with a small shy smile – “and maybe to study music.” For more stories from the field, visit our blog.

PREVENTION: Academic Scholarships Scholarship recipient at Family Day

Since 2005, PALS has awarded 3,736 scholarships, enabling nearly 800 young girls in An Giang, Dong Thap, and Kien Giang provinces to continue to go to school. The 2011-2012 academic year marked the seventh year of our continuous commitment to prevent human trafficking through better educational opportunities for young women and girls. The scholarships cover school tuition and fees, medical insurance, school uniforms, books, and school supplies. One of the distinguishing features of the ADAPT Academic Scholarship program is the high level of support we provide to each recipient and her family. Each student receives tutoring support and the opportunity to attend summer camp, where she learns important safety and life skills through interactive workshops and activities. Each year, students and their families also attend a Family Day that raises awareness about trafficking and emphasizes the preventive role of education. PALS tracks the progress of each scholarship recipient through frequent communication with teachers and regular family visits. This close contact allows us to develop early intervention strategies where needed. Thanks to these efforts, our annual drop-out rate is 11%, a statistic that compares favorably with the 16% average dropout rate in the United States and the 27% dropout rate in Vietnam’s border provinces such as An Giang.

PREVENTION: Vocational Training & Job Placement

Culinary program recipients

The vocational training and job placement program strives to provide at-risk young women with an occupational skill that gives them better economic stability, and offers another safeguard against trafficking. Since 2005, we have supported vocational classes and provided life skills training for 838 young women. In 2011, we have continued our commitment to developing sustainable vocational opportunities for program participants. Vocational training courses have included: cosmetology, culinary skills, embroidery, craft/mat weaving, industrial sewing, childcare. Funded by Chefs Without Borders (San Francisco, CA), 34 young women enrolled in the highly regarded and rigorous 6-month culinary program at the SaigonTourist School in Ho Chi Minh City. All participants have now completed the program, some graduating with highest marks, and are now interning or working in various hotels and restaurants. PALS support continues in the 6-12 months after graduation during the job placement period, with the goals of increasing their job retention, helping them establish independent lives, and promoting responsible fiscal habits. We help to locate stable housing, supplement initial months of income, and contribute matching funds into Individual Development Accounts to encourage savings.

2011 Achievements  

34 young women have successfully graduated from the culinary vocational program, some with the highest marks. Most are working in restaurants in Binh Duong, HCMC, etc. Total of young women who have received vocational training since 2005: 838

PROTECTION: Reintegration Our reintegration services work with trafficking survivors in their communities and at our shelters. PALS operates two shelters for trafficking survivors during their critical period of reintegration. Our first shelter, the Long Xuyen Open House, is located in An Giang province, near the Vietnam-Cambodia border and started accepting residents in 2008. Based on its success and the ever-growing need for reintegration services, PALS opened the Compassion House in Lao Cai Province along the Vietnam-China border in 2010, andd has since accepted 28 survivors, all of whom are from ethnic minority tribes. The Long Xuyen Open House and Lao Cai Compassion House offer a supportive environment for survivors when returning home is not yet a safe or viable option. The shelters play an instrumental role in helping the young women regain self-confidence and establish self-sufficiency. The young women, aged 13 and older, reside in the shelter until they finish their training. Some had stayed 2+ years. Our services include:

      

Safe housing & Emotional support Vocational training or academic schooling Health insurance, doctors’ visits, & support for medical treatments Life skills training: literacy, reproductive health awareness, etc. Job placement assistance and funds to open family businesses Legal assistance for prosecutions and convictions Support to family members

Mu* is from the Dao ethnic minority group. Her father passed away when she was very young and her mother told her that she needed to work to help her family since there was no man in the house. She has a sister who has been trafficked to China and At 15 years old, cannot be found. Mu had never attend any school.

Mu’s friend invited

Since she was five, Mu has worked on local farms and her to the market as a hired laborer. She was 11 years old before she had her first pair of shoes. Mu enjoyed going to the local and then sold her market, usually with a group of friends. One day, when she was 15 years old, an older boy invited her to go to another market across the border into China to buy her a white pair of shoes. Afterwards, he sold her to a Chinese couple. The couple took her to a rural village where she was to be sold as a wife to Chinese men. When she refused, she was severely beaten until she lost several teeth. Still, Mu refused to obey. The couple then told her that they would adopt her since she refused to marry. To avoid further abuse, she pretended to agree although she did not trust them. The couple continued to take Mu as they traveled deeper and deeper into China. One night, while the couple was sleeping, she fled. Running by waterfalls, she thought to herself, “If I get caught, I will jump into the waterfall to kill myself.” She continued to run for countless days. One day, some police officers saw her running. They took her in and had a interpreter translate her story. Soon after, arrangements were made for her to return to Vietnam. Mu is now 16 years old and is learning how to read and write for the first time in her life. She is currently learning how to sew at the Compassion House shelter. She dreams of learning anything and everything. And she dreams of starting anew. For more stories from the field, visit our blog.
