This, too, is what the freedom of anti-trafficking work looks like. Quan's mother borrowed every penny she could to pay for his high school education after his father had a debilitating stroke. Her work as a "rag-picker"--collecting bits of fabric for resale-- just wasn't enough to feed the family and pay for tuition, books, and uniforms. A dedicated student in his rural community, Quan's diligent work earned him admission to a university in Danang.
These days he attends classes and studies by day, and earns money at a food delivery job at night. But his job comes with some unexpected challenges. Read Quan's words:
"Sometimes I get orders that are dangerous for me. Some men try to get me to come inside to spend the night in a hotel or at their house, offering me 2 or 3 times my monthly salary for a night. Even at school, I meet people wearing suits who look so cool. They invite me to work for them, promising a high profit. I know that their activities are illegal, so I have never taken part in those jobs. My present time is hard, but help with tuition eases my burden so I can continue my education."
Quan honors the sacrifice of his mother and your generous gifts by studying hard at university while he holds a job to pay his rent and food. In his own words, Quan credits your help in rescuing him from sexual predators!
