First hand knowledge - voices across the Mekong: community action against trafficking of children and women

Draws conclusions regarding awareness raising among children and women, and possible action, supported by district and provincial authorities and national governments, with a view to avoid being trafficked across the Mekong.

The approach to preparing this report is essentially that of appreciative inquiry, to relate the stories of children, women, and community leaders as they themselves tell it. Essentially to this approach were the visits to the communities and the focus group discussions and interviews with the children, women, and community leaders in the project areas. For each of the provinces visited, there were also meetings and discussions with the relevant provincial and national level authorities who make up the national and provincial and district project steering committees.
