Trafficking in Thailand

MTV Exit

Posted in Resources by constancedykhuizen on March 29, 2010

MTV Exit has provided a great resource on their website in the form of an entertaining anime-style cartoon to help educate people about trafficking. It can be difficult to stand and lecture specifically kids about the dangers of trafficking, because talking about it is not only culturally sensitive but also not a lot of fun, so this anime helps avoid losing audience interest. The best part is the soundtrack is available in English, Thai, Japanese, Tagalog and Mandarin so it can be widely used to educate about trafficking.

We have showed it to our students and they not only paid attention but also said that they learned something. They have other documentaries that target Western audiences as well (by using Angelina Jolie as narrator). They’re well executed (Radiohead!), informational and worth watching.
