Our team would like to thank human rights activists Bob and Fran German for their volunteer work for our organisation. Their background is in business and leadership consulting. Sharing their expertise, they helped us develop a Strategic Plan that provides unified direction with clear goals that we can all work to achieve over the next three years.
Americans Bob and Fran visit Chiang Mai, Thailand for several months every year. They are primarily engaged in increasing awareness, raising funds and working with productive non-profit organisations to counter human trafficking and child slavery.
When asked about combatting human trafficking, Bob said, “The root cause of human trafficking in Southeast Asia is poverty. This leads to hopelessness, desperation and vulnerability to traffickers. The best way to prevent this is through education and independence.” Fran added, “It is community-empowering projects like PCF undertakes that make a real difference in curbing modern-day slavery. They foster self-sufficiency, build confidence, and create a desire for an independent future.”
Our projects cover a variety of essential needs including education, health issues, housing and safety. But what attracted Bob and Fran most to volunteer with PCF is that our projects give hope to people and enable them to help themselves.
Bob and Fran commented that, “Our goal is to die young...as late as possible! And the way to do this is by serving others.”
