Striving to ensure justice and the protection of human rights for victims of human trafficking, bonded labour, physical and sexual assault and other forms of exploitation and oppression in South East Asia. 

SISHA focuses the core of its work on combating human trafficking in Cambodia though given the cross border nature of the issues being dealt with it regularly coordinates its work with non-governmental organisations, embassies, and law enforcement in Malaysia and Thailand. Cambodia remains one of the poorest countries in the world and its social indicators are among the worst in the South East Asian region. Following decades of mass genocide, civil war, and widespread corruption, extreme poverty, human trafficking, and sexual exploitation persist as key threats to fundamental human rights and personal security.

Funds raised: $13,175

SISHA got involved in TFN's 2013 pilot series and raised $13,175 to continue combating human trafficking in Cambodia and supporting other human rights issues in broader South East Asia.
