About the SOLD Project

We prevent child trafficking and exploitation in Thailand through culturally relevant programs for vulnerable children and share their stories to empower creative, compassionate people to act.

The SOLD Project was born from a documentary film project. When our founder Rachel Sparks learned about child sexual exploitation in Thailand, she decided to expose it through the power of film. After interviewing dozens of sex workers, common themes became apparent: poverty, a lack of education, and a lack of options. Rachel responded by providing a scholarship to an at-risk student, and SOLD was born.

SOLD’s scholarships and resources empower at-risk Thai students to stay in school, pursue their dreams, and break the cycle of poverty. Our efforts in the US are centered around telling dignifying stories that encourage people to become a part of changing our world for the better. Browse below to learn more.
