The Issue

Modern slavery in the form of child labour and debt bondage is endemic in the Cambodian brick-making industry. It is not a question of a few kilns, but every kiln. Almost every brick on which the nation’s construction boom rests is fired in kilns where children labour and adults languish for years in bondage. Yet this is an issue that can’t be resolved at its endpoint alone. What has allowed debt bondage to become so prevalent and normalised is the way in which Cambodia’s poorest have been made to bear the burden of their changing climate without provision for their well-being, or protections against the vagaries of the market.

The Solution

AIM serves children and families in many ways through our community church, AIM School and the AIM Medical Clinic. AIM also conduct investigations, perform raids, make arrests, and rescue victims of trafficking alongside Cambodian law enforcement. AIM's restoration programs provide survivors with love, hope, healing and the tools for a brand new life that will last a lifetime. Survivors stay in their Restoration home for as long as they need, and our loving team of social workers follow up with these women for the rest of their lives.
