Love146 seeks to rise up and equip new Abolitionists as well as give greater momentum to effective grassroots efforts. No single effort will bring about the Abolition of child trafficking and exploitation -- it will be a movement united with a collective shout. Traffickers are highly organized in their crime - we must be more organized in our movement to undo and abolish their work. This requires listening to those who know what’s up. This requires networking to build relationships and communities committed to ending this atrocity. This requires audacity. This requires empowering a movement of Love.
ASIA CAPACITY BUILDING PROGRAM
Directed by Dr. Glenn Miles, this program works to expand the abolitionist movement in Asia into key areas of need that will end the trafficking of children. For decades, Dr. Miles has been in Asia identifying, supporting and walking alongside rock stars in the grassroots movement to protect children. Because he is connected globally and academically, yet lives and works in Cambodia, Glenn is well positioned to identify both gaps in the Abolitionist movement, and those who are stepping into these gaps. In the coming year, through the Asia Capacity Building Program, Love146 will continue to focus on the following areas of need:
As Love146 identifies fieldwork or research that is stepping into these gaps, we initiate to kick start or strengthen these efforts through mentoring, staff training, academic input, board participation, and field evaluation. Often strategic financial investment is crucial to enable work in these gap areas of the movement to end child trafficking. The following organizations receive financial support through this program as they pioneer work on the frontiers of the Abolition movement in Asia:
Because working in the fringes of a movement is often lonely, the Asia Capacity Building Program is proactive in interconnecting those working in gap areas. Not only does this networking lead to shared knowledge and best practices, but builds relationships, which are crucial to sustainability.
Love146 Task Forces are groups of volunteers who meet at least monthly and are engaged in the Abolition Movement. These Task Forces are committed to becoming locally educated groups on the issue of human trafficking, raising awareness for Love146 and the Abolition Movement, becoming activists for local and international efforts to end trafficking, and annually raising money for Love146.
