It only takes a small spark of hope to ignite courage in the trafficking hubs of Asia. The Eden Outreach team speaks the truth that a new, brighter future is possible and support is available if they dare to dream.
The Salt and Light Collection highlights one of our core beliefs that the tiniest pinprick of light permeates even the darkest places of the world. Yuan Yuan is a woman who strengthened this belief when a simple scrap of paper, coupled with her immense courage, gave her a lifeline to escape from a hopeless situation.
At a young age, immense responsibility was placed on Yuan Yuan to provide for her poverty-stricken family. After unsuccessfully trying to find a job in the city, a rickshaw driver suggested a job in a massage parlor. Unfortunately, this was only a cover and Yuan Yuan was kidnaped and forced, with extreme violence and cruelty, to work in prostitution. While suffering from depression and considering suicide, Yuan Yuan met our Outreach team and felt hope at their words of rescue for the first time in years. Her story of escape after this chance meeting still inspires us to push on in our Outreach as we see that not all light can be overcome by darkness.
Eden’s programs are based in South-East Asia which is host to more than half of the global total of human trafficking victims.
In 2014 Eden began its programs in Myanmar, a nation that has been a hotbed for human trafficking for years. Political instability, natural disasters, and internal ethnic infighting have led to a devastating lack of opportunity for the people of Myanmar.
Poverty and political unrest are at the heart of Myanmar's human trafficking crisis, which has only grown more severe over recent years. The economic collapse, brought on by the pandemic and political crisis, has exacerbated the level of human trafficking and the need for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and other not-for-profit organizations like Eden to fill this void and provide essential support to victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
