Our Daughters for Sale

In Thailand, parents begin paying for their children's schooling after age 12. This age is a critical period for "at-risk" children, especially young girls living in poverty. When a family's average income is 10,000 baht and a girl's virginity is worth 40,000 baht ($1,200 U.S. dollars), many of these parents make desperate decisions and sell their girls into human slavery or sex work.

This short documentary tells the story of the Children´s Organization of Southeast Asia (COSA), an NGO that was founded by a former documentary photographer. COSA promoted prevention through education and negotiated with communities to establish trust, using an upstream approach to prevent sex trafficking. The organization also offered schooling for at-risk girls and educated communities about sex trafficking, in addition to providing Thai families with employment opportunities that deterred them from exchanging their children for money.
