    Somaly Mam

    She grew up in abject poverty under the Khmer Rouge regime, was sold into sexual slavery when she was just a child, and endured torture and rape in Phnom Penh brothels, until she escaped with the help of a foreign aid worker. Instead of distancing herself from the past, Somaly Mam set up AFESIP (Acting for Women in Distressing Situations), an organisation that helps victims of sexual slavery empower themselves and regain their dignity. Mam shares with us her hopes and dreams for the future, and tells us what keeps her going.
