What I love most about the Filipino spirit is how we always come together in prayer when we hear devastating issues. I was reminded of this when I interviewed Cecilia Flores-Oebanda, founder and director of Visayan Forum Foundation, at the first-ever National Creative Youth Summit for the Movement of Anti-Trafficking Advocates last October.
MTV Exit (End Exploitation and Trafficking) partnered with The Visayan Forum Foundation, in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Australian Government Aid Program (AusAid).
Visayan Forum Foundation is globally recognized for its work to empower victims of human trafficking, domestic servitude and other forms of exploitation. It started in 1991.
It helps victims to know their rights, and empowers them to fight and express themselves.
