In 2003, Rapha International began an aftercare program for underage female survivors who had been rescued from slavery and sexual exploitation in Battambang, Cambodia. Nineteen years later, Rapha is an international organization that has won the favor of the governments in the countries in which it works. The Rapha International model is to recruit and equip local staff who are qualified and passionate about combatting child slavery, sexual exploitation, and abuse in their own countries. Each of Rapha's aftercare programs implement a holistic approach to healing.

Rapha International's model has a proven impact in the fight against human trafficking. Founded in 2003, Rapha began working with child victims of human trafficking in Battambang, Cambodia in that year. In 2009, Rapha began serving trafficking victims in Chiang Mai, Thailand and opened its first prevention program - Kids Club - in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. In 2012, another Kids Club location was established in Battambang, Cambodia. Rapha began its work with trafficking survivors in Haiti in 2014, and opened both an aftercare facility in Siem Reap, Cambodia and a Kids Club location in Mae Sot, Thailand in 2016. In 2020, Rapha opened up their Rapha Hope & Healing Center in Joplin, Missouri.

Program accomplishments


Counseling and Social Services: Child victims of sexual abuse often require extensive counseling and social services to heal from the traumas they have experienced. By supporting the work of Rapha, you are helping us maintain quality counselors and social workers on staff to walk with these children on the path of healing.

Shelter and Security: Trafficked and exploited children may have never lived in a safe and stable environment before. When you give to Rapha, you are helping provide these children with a safe place to heal and rest their head at night.

Basic Necessities: Girls at our aftercare campuses often come with little more than the clothes on their back. Donated funds help provide them with things like quality nutrition, clean clothes, clean bedding, and personal care items.

Education and Training: If the children in our care receive no education or training, they have little hope for a brighter future. That's why, with your help, we provide basic education and vocation training for success in life outside residential care.

Gift acceptance policy: Rapha International strives for excellence in using donations according to each donor's wishes. In cases where specific projects are significantly overfunded or underfunded, funds may be used for another one of Rapha's life-changing programs.
