About us

Agir pour les Femmes en Situation Precaire (AFESIP) is a Cambodian NGO established in 1996, founded by it's President, Somaly Mam who was a victim of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Understanding the levels of suffering and lack of help facing trafficked girls, Somaly began to try and help girls facing the same situation and provide for their needs. Due to the numbers of trafficked victims in Cambodia, her work inevitably grew and in 1996 AFESIP became the first organisation in Cambodia to offer specialised services in this regard.
