Hagar International is an international Christian organization committed to the recovery, empowerment and reintegration of women and children in Myanmar, Afghanistan, Cambodia and Vietnam. Pierre Tami and his wife, Simonetta, launched Hagar in 1994 in Cambodia with the vision of empowering women and children from devastating backgrounds of violence, abuse and trafficking to become strong, resilient and independent members of the community. In 2004, Pierre Tami was recognized by the U.S. Department of State as one of the six world heroes in the fight against modern slavery.
Hagar's purpose is singular: it restores broken lives. Hagar stays focused on the individual and does whatever it takes - for as long as it takes - to restore people's lives.
