‘Education is Part of Prevention’: Cambodia Adds Human Trafficking Lessons to School Curriculum

The new lessons will help students understand the different forms of human trafficking, the roles of schools and communities in prevention, and the relevant laws and rights.

School students in Cambodia will learn about the dangers and laws around human trafficking from an updated syllabus starting in 2021, officials said.

The Southeast Asian country – which faces U.S. sanctions if it does not improve its record on human trafficking by next year – will add lessons for primary and high school students, a spokesman for the education ministry said.

“Hopefully, students learn about the ways to stop human trafficking in school and among youths,” Ros Soveacha told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
