When women and children are back in their country, AAT Reg. Thai works with them to build their future according to their choices and to undertake actions on prevention and protection in their communities. We first prepare women, families and communities to ensure stability while back home. We then set up several techniques for reintegration in order to develop best possibilities of the women and children. We then support employment or business development. We finally support women to develop community actions to prevent and protect themselves or others.
The reintegration process is implemented directly inside women’s communities.
When women and minors are already back home. AAT Reg. Thai works with them for their reintegration, finding an occupation, and community actions development for stable futures and to minimize the risks of re-trafficking.
AAT Reg. Thai has developed several techniques of reintegration to facilitate and develop the choices of target groups. Our process gives priority to direct community reintegration.
AAT Reg. Thai studies the community where target groups will be reintegrated and explore possibilities for work and livelihoods.

AAT Reg. Thai prevention actions enable women and minors to keep safe from sexual exploitation and trafficking and encourage victims to leave prostitution. Prevention actions are implemented in several ways: We set up systems in communities at risk to prevent vulnerable women and minors from being trafficked and to be able to protect themselves. We detect missing persons and potential victims for protection on their transit stage before reaching their final destination. We disseminate information in strategic places on trafficking and self protection. We encourage and provide new alternatives to the most vulnerable groups of people and the victims themselves.
The program targets women and minors in general, the ones living in communities at risk such as cross border areas, the most vulnerable ones such as stateless persons, or former victims as well as the ones already involved in prostitution. More / Results
We develop techniques to find and protect victims with law enforcement agencies or other relevant agencies.

After been protected from situations of exploitation, AAT Reg. Thai assists victims until their return home. We assist them to access their rights and prepare them for safe return and community reintegration.
We identify the ones kept in detention centers who do not have access to protection and transfer them to adapted centers.
In adapted centers, we provide them with legal support to receive compensations. We also provide them assistance to recover from their mental and physical problems. We then assist them to prepare for their future and build their capacity for community actions. Finally, we prepare them for the different steps of repatriation. More / Results
