PHT developed from the passion of its founding members in addressing widespread child exploitation in Southeast Asia. Dedicated individuals were drawn together through their mutual commitment to these issues and formed PHT in 1999. Members had already been actively engaged in independently combating child exploitation in the region, either through non profit work, academic research, or teaching.
Prevent Human Trafficking (PHT) is a Washington, D.C., based non-profit organization working to build a bridge between South East Asia and the United States to prevent human trafficking. PHT empowers individuals, organizations and governments to tackle the root causes of human trafficking through direct support and technical assistance. PHT uses its expertise and networks to promote best practice and inspire sustainable solutions in the movement to prevent human trafficking.
