A Vacation With a Purpose: Fighting Trafficking in Thailand The New York Times

Journalist Daniela Petrova joined ECPAT-USA in Thailand to experience our Advocacy Journey firsthand for the New York Times Travel section. “[U]nlike regular tourists,” she said, “we knew the hardships these women faced, and I left the village grateful that I had contributed — however minimally — to the work of ECPAT-USA and the Thai groups we had met. Months later, the smiles on the Akha women’s faces shine brighter in my memories of Thailand than its gilded temples.
