My Internship: Ending Child Sex Slavery through Prevention

Ending child sex slavery through prevention. These six words hold power and serve as the leading force behind the dreams of an entire organization. My “Remember Nhu”  internship has taken extraordinary steps to take this popular fad in social justice and actually do something about sex trafficking around the world. I feel incredibly blessed to be heading to Thailand in a few days to do my internship with these people. I am coming to the end of a week long training in preparation to head overseas and serve at a children’s home.

While my experiences in serving at non-profits is limited, I can already tell that these people value others so very much. Just by spending a few minutes with anyone who’s been directly involved in this organization you can immediately sense their passion for the cause. The leadership team works in various ways to do their part in both spreading CTA button for Blog UGawareness and enabling others to get involved. Like I previously stated Remember Nhu works specifically with the prevention of children who are at risk for entering the sex trade. Carl Ralston, founder and president, pondered being a child in the midst of being sold and about the effectiveness and timing of intervention. He came to the conclusion that it would be much more helpful for an organization to prevent a child from entering sex slavery rather than waiting until the child was in it and needed rescue. By working to prevent children who are at risk from ever entering this industry these kids, their families, and entire villages are being radically changed. These children are taken to homes where they can be provided for and their needs met through different sponsorships from individuals or even entire churches.

About the organization:

Remember Nhu is seeking to change the world through the love of Christ and love of these precious children around  the world. When kids are taken into one of these homes they are provided for in their present state and also equipped for the future. These homes seek to provide for kids holistically by meeting their physical, educational, emotional, and spiritual needs. Kids also do not age out of the system, but instead can receive vocational training or further education. Their individualistic and holistic approach to the issue of child sex slavery is making an impact on so many around the world and I feel both honored and inspired to serve as an intern with them this summer. I know God is working through them and trust him to use me as a humble vessel in ending child sex slavery through prevention.
