In October, Joseph Sweeney, the founder and CEO of The Asservo Project, traveled to Cambodia to determine how the organization can best assist in the country’s fight against human trafficking.

During his week-long visit, Sweeney met with government officials and various non-profits who work tirelessly in the area.

On October 24, Sweeney met with Deputy Prime Minister General Ke Kimyan and his aides in Phnom Penh for a discussion on the various challenges that Cambodia faces involving human trafficking. The Cambodian government has requested the assistance of The Asservo Project.

In the near future, The Asservo Project will be working closely with government officials and non profits in the region to assist in their fight against this epidemic.

The Asservo Project is a Pittsburgh-based non profit organization created to combat the global scourge of human trafficking and child exploitation. More information can be found at www.theasservoproject.org
