Tieng, a 19 year-old Vietnamese girl, waits at the Vietnamese border with Transitions Cambodia Executive Director James Pond who developed protocol to help local NGO's mesh with repatriations policies created by the International Office of Migration. Tieng, after graduating from the Transitions Cambodia program opted to return to Vietnam. Prostituted by her mother in local brothels, Tieng has spent several years in victim aftercare facilities, finishing with Transitions Cambodia where she was provided supervised but open living conditions and an education in computer technology to help her find meaningful employment that may help keep her from returning to sex work, an all to common fate for victims of sex slavery.
