Ayee with her sister's four year-old son Nalin in the Akha hill tribe town of Senjai near Mae Sai, northern Thailand. Ayee was sold as a young girl to a German who took her to Germany; she returned months later to find her younger sister Booka living and studying at DEPDC where her risk of being trafficked like Ayee was minimized. Soon Ayee moved to the DEPDC facility where she learned how to cope with her experience; today as a woman in her mid-thirties she is an advocate for women's and children's rights works in her 50,000 person municipality to end human trafficking...DEPDC is addressing the issue of human trafficking in northern Thailand by providing a safe place to live and study for youth who are at risk of being trafficked..
