Ratanak International is a Christian charity working to break the cycles of poverty, exploitation and abuse in Cambodia for over 30 years. 

Each year in Cambodia, thousands are trafficked and exploited. Young Cambodian women are lured by the lies of traffickers into forced marriages, sexual exploitation and domestic slavery overseas. Young Cambodian men looking to provide for their families are recruited into modern-day slavery mainly in the fishing and construction industries. 

Survivors who escape come home traumatized and broken. But they are not alone. We operate programs to protect vulnerable Cambodians, specializing in the restoration of human trafficking survivors. 

Our award-winning Ratanak Achievement Program (RAP) assists women who are survivors of sexual exploitation, forced labour and human trafficking. With your help, we can provide safe transitional housing and long-term support as our clients reintegrate into their home communities. Our skilled team provides individualized care for each young woman, including access to life skills and vocational training, education opportunities, and trauma and family counselling. 

Our Men’s Achievement Program assists men who have survived exploitation, forced labour and human trafficking. Your generosity gives men and their families access to Ratanak counsellors and social workers, with job skills training and educational opportunities to help them start afresh.   

Through your partnership, Ratanak can confront the overwhelming darkness of slavery and see the transformation of young lives from slavery to freedom.
