Another way for women to get into sex trafficking in a developed country is by a

organized system where there is a head man who is in charge. (FBI gov) He has all these women "working" for him. (FBI gov) These women are either choose to join in or they are abducted and then drugged so that they are unable to run away from him. (FBI gov) Eventually they start believing that the boss or their master is the only way to feel loved and they are either to scared to run away or don't want to go back to feeling like they were not apart of something. (FBI gov)The boss usually acts like a father to these girls so they feel the need to stay as if they were family. (FBI gov) Some times they even promise a future marriage and perfect life style that the girls want so bad because of never having one even before the sex trafficking. (FBI gov)

These girls rarely speak against their master even at an opportunity to leave cause of a fear of getting killed. (FBI gov) They live I brothels and are raped multiple times a day. (FBI gov) Girls as young as five and older just in the United States alone, in other countries such as Cambodia it's as young as three.

There are many different organization that work to make the benefits of the girls to the best that the can be. (Agape international mission) A major organization that helps in Cambodia specifically is Agape Internationals Missions or AIM. (Agape international mission) Agape rescue girls that are I'm the sex trafficking system. (Agape international mission) They keep them in a housing that the mission provides. (Agape international mission) There they are taught the word or God and how he loves them no matter who they are or what their past was. (Agape international mission) Many of the girls don't have a self worth because the pimps brain washed them so much. (Agape international mission) They don't know how to have a normal life or be able to make a living. (Agape international mission) So AIM helps them make a living by teaching them how to work such as making cloths and baking. (Agape international mission) Some of the people that they help are people that were in charge of the sex trafficking system. (Agape international mission) Agape international missions has created out of an old brothel a gym called the Lords Gym. (Agape international misson) It is open to the public and they don't push the Lords Word in their faces they just show them kindness and how Jesus would act towards them. (Agape international mission) Through this mission they have saved and changed lives. (Agape international mission) A lot of these men that were cold hearted completely change and feel regret for what they did but the Missionaries tell them that no matter what sin they committed in the past God forgives them and erases it. (Agape international mission)

All these people spend so much time on making someone else's life better and to teach them about God. They even sometimes risk there own life by rescuing these girls. (Agape international mission) This organization bring girls from Cambodia to the United States to give them a better chance at a good life. (Agape international mission) There are housing centers that they have locally so that they have a place to live until they get on their feet and a stable job. (Agape international mission) Then just like how social services checks up on their victims Agape international missions checks up on theirs and always keeps them under there mission. (Agape inernational mission)

I hope to one day be able to go to Cambodia and be able to help these girls first hand. I have always been passionate about girls who went through tramatic abusive times and always had a heart to help.
