To fight human trafficking

ADAPT Inspires is a benefit luncheon celebrating the milestones of one of the most effective anti-human trafficking programs on the northern and southern Viet Nam borders. ADAPT (An giang/Dong thap Alliance for the Prevention of Trafficking) seeks to prevent the trafficking of young girls and women by enhancing their educational attainment and expanding their vocational choices through a supportive web of services.
