Avoiding falling into traffickers’ trap

Sok Chantrea, 22, sophomore student at Phnom Penh University
“I will not work abroad because I think the best choice is to stay home in Cambodia. I can stay safe and be with my family. In our country, there are lots of job opportunities. I can easily ask for help from my relatives if I need it. Going abroad for work entails risks of ending up in slavery.”

Seu Chandeourn, 21, sophomore student at National University of Management.
“I just listen to my parents’ advice, I study hard and do not hang out at night nor get in touch with bad people. I just follow what they tell me because human trafficking is one among many other reasons for my parents to worry. In my opinion, I feel protected when I listen to my parents’ advice because I believe they have generally more experience.”

Houy Mey Mey, 20, sophomore student at Phnom Penh University
“The best way to avoid cheats is to stay informed and alert. If I am not well informed, bad people will easily deceive me. Information is the way to go! Information is protection. I should steer clear from dangerous situations in order to stay safe and know how to behave against it.”

Sem Sophary, 19, student at ELT Institute
“As I have noticed in our society, it is very difficult to trust people outside the family circle. Whenever it happens, I make sure I know who and what their intentions are before I get to talk to them. We can see someone’s face, but we cannot read his or her mind. The way I prevent myself from being kidnapped is not to trust people who I do not know, as I might fall into a trap.”

Kim Vannet, 18 , grade 11 student at Borey 100 Khnong High School
“I cannot get a well-paid job in my own country, but I do not want to go abroad for work because I heard a lot about Cambodian women being trafficked. Here I can work for shops in the market to sustain myself. Staying in my country can definitely protect me from traffickers. ”
