Agape International Missions (AIM) is doing whatever it takes to end the evil of child sex trafficking. AIM’s mission is to rescue, heal, and empower survivors of trafficking to be free, while protecting those vulnerable to exploitation.
For a survivor, experiencing freedom is just the beginning of their journey. AIM provides a space for healing at their Christian-based Restoration Homes. Survivors are empowered through education, vocational training, and safe, sustainable employment.
When survivors, children, and families experience Jesus’ love, they transform the community. What was once a dark, evil place can be filled with light and love through Christ.

When Bella was 12, she was tricked into leaving her home to work as a house cleaner for a woman who ended up beating her and trafficking her for sex. After years of abuse, she was rescued by a partner organization and came to AIM where she witnessed unconditional love and recognized her value.
Bella stayed in AIM's Restoration Home for the next few years. She is now on AIM staff as an outreach social worker in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Bella offers exploited women the same freedom she once received.
She is now married with a wonderful daughter and continues to use her story to bring freedom and empowerment to the voiceless! Her transformation was possible because of the support of partners and donors.
With support from O.U.R., AIM is able to conduct investigations into cases of child sex trafficking and work in tandem with local police to arrest traffickers in Cambodia.
“It has been an honor to partner with AIM for the past 6 years. They provide holistic prevention and aftercare. They also don’t leave a survivor when he or she turns 18 years old. They have transition programs including housing and employment. This is not just an aftercare program. They pour their hearts into loving others, and everyone feels like family when they are around the staff at AIM.” - VP of O.U.R. Aftercare, Jessica Mass, about AIM's aftercare efforts.
