THE CENTER FOR GIRLS

Empowering others to empower themselves.

In 1997, fresh out of a training on sexual abuse prevention with the foundation of women in Chiang Rai, Nunnaree Luangmoi, was inspired to devote her life to this work and created the Center for Girls. Nunnaree has been living and working in Chiang Rai Province fighting for women’s rights and against human trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of children for the past 20 years.

Center for Girls’ mission is to work within the Chiang Rai Province to empower women and children, reduce instances of gender-based violence (GBV), and educate the populace about human trafficking issues. CFG seeks to prevent the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) and all forms of abuse against children. The center for girls is  committed to create sustainable participatory projects that equip people in the surrounding communities with the necessary life skills to become independent leaders who strive towards human rights for all, regardless of gender, age, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, or socioeconomic status.

We are so honored and thrilled to join forces with the center for girls during our stay in Chiang Rai and support their mission.

You can also support their mission from around the world by making a direct donation to the center.
