From Half the Sky...Some Lessons Learned

Three lessons learned from a story of a rescued girl from a brothel in Cambodia

First, rescuing girls is complicated and uncertain. It is most productive to focus on prevention and putting brothels out of business.

Second, never give up. Helping people is difficult and unpredictable, and interventions don’t always work out. But successes are possible and incredibly important.

Thirdly, even when a social issue is insoluble in its entirety, do what you can. It is important to the ones you are able to help, even if you can’t help them all.
