who we are

The Freedom Story was born from a documentary film called The SOLD Project.

When Producer Rachel Sparks learned about child sexual exploitation in Thailand, she decided to expose it through the power of film. After interviewing dozens of sex workers, common themes became apparent: poverty, a lack of education, and a lack of options.

Sparks met Tawee Donchai, who shared his vision of starting a trafficking prevention program in his village, where he had been witness to many of his peers being trafficked. The two then met Rachel Goble, who had spent years researching human trafficking at Fuller Theological Seminary and had seen the huge service gap in the area of prevention. The three partnered to found the organization.

Our human rights education, scholarships and resources empower at-risk Thai students to stay in school, pursue their dreams, and break the cycle of poverty and exploitation. Our efforts in the US are centered around telling dignifying stories that encourage people to become a part of changing our world for the better. Browse below to learn more.

OUR MISSION

We prevent child trafficking & exploitation through culturally relevant programs for vulnerable children & share their stories to empower creative, compassionate people to act.
