Founded in 1988 AIM is committed to Freedom. Fighting trafficking, restoring victims, transforming communities in Cambodia and the World. AIM has started over 800 Christ-centered, Bible teaching churches in Cambodia. Through these churches it has provided leadership training to thousands, and provided disaster relief, medical supplies and food to thousands more. Since 2005 the ministries of AIM have been focused on ending the evil of child sexual slavery in Cambodia by providing transformational aftercare for victims and equipping the local church for prevention. An aftercare center, Agape Restoration Center, was opened in August of 2006, providing holistic long-term aftercare for rescued girls. In September 2007, AIM opened a community center, Rahab’s House, in a former brothel in the heart of a village where sex slavery is the norm for every girl by the age of 10. www.agapewebsite.org
