This Christmas, one way that you can help end sexual exploitation and human trafficking is to buy some Christmas decorations or gifts on December 11 after Sunday morning services in the Upper East Hall.
As you likely know, Tenth has been joining hands with Cambodian partners for 10 years in combatting sexual slavery through one of our main partners called Chab Dai – which means joining hands.
On a recent trip to Cambodia, our Missions Pastor, Patrick Elaschuk brought back fair trade Christmas decoration and gifts made by our remarkable and resilient overcomers to sexual slavery.
You can join hands with Tenth and our partners and purchase a decoration like this tree ornament, advent calendar or Justice John wallet made from reclaimed rubber.

More info about the organizations that make the gifts.
Daughters: We operate production workshops where our clients learn workplace skills. These are housed in our intake centre for new clients. Here, we employ 100 clients or more. Our gorgeous accessories and ornaments have earned us a global reputation of desirable, high quality, fair trade gifts that everybody wants. Our clients earn a much higher hourly salary than in garment factories with free daycare, medical and supplementary services. Weekly hours are capped at 40. Where possible, we recycle materials and keep exploitation out of our supply chain.
Sak Saum: From the beginning, our goal has been to create a nurturing, empowering, restorative program which facilitates vocational training in sewing, excellent products, and community development. We believe in the union of powerful, life-changing outreach with effective, excellent business. Our work is supported through the sale of our products around the world.
The Vocational Training Center (VTC) creates economic development, skill development, educational development and other opportunities to families in the Saang district. This is how the battle against human trafficking will be won – one person, one family, one community at a time.
