In Japanese folklore, there are stories of children disappearing from their villages without a trace. A child’s footprints could be found, walking to the middle of a field, where the footprints would end with nowhere to go. Nowhere, but up. It was believed that these children were kamikakushi, hidden by the spirits. In some stories, the children returned to the village years later, “to see everyone one more time”, before disappearing never to be seen again. The children were believed to be enslaved by the kami, the spirits.

Agape International Missions works to end human trafficking and empower survivors of exploitation. With 12 programs on the ground in Cambodia impacting over 10,000 people every year, AIM is holistically stopping the cycle of exploitation by preventing human trafficking and rescuing, restoring and reintegrating survivors.
