|| The New Life Center Foundation (NLCF) works exclusively with ethnic minority (tribal) women throughout the Mekong sub- region (Thailand and its neighboring countries) who are at risk for, or victims of, labor exploitation.
Labor exploitation includes, but is not limited to, forced work in factories, local markets, domestic situations, and the sex trade. Since its inception in 1987, the NLCF has partnered with the Royal Thai Government and other NGOs to provide legal, psychological, and repatriation assistance to victims of human trafficking.
The NLCF provides safe shelter, education, vocational and life skills training to all residents. Over the past three years, new treatment methodologies for victims have been implemented, including art, dance and music therapy. NLCF staff continue to advocate for full human rights and legal Thai citizenship for all residents, and have led ground-breaking educational campaigns about trafficking, labor exploitation, and HIV/AIDS throughout Thailand, China, and Laos PDR.
The New Life Center has received an award for its work in Thailand given by former Prime Minister Chuan Leekpai, and was visited by the former First Lady of the United States of America, Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
