The Sunlight Foundation is a tax deductible Public Benefit Institution (PBI). All donations over $2 are tax-deductible.

The Sunlight Foundation is a charity built around the belief that every child deserves a childhood. We want you to share our vision of a world in which every child plays, learns and is kept safe from harm. Sadly, this is not true yet. The loathsome crime of sex-trafficking where young girls, often no more than five or six years old, are bought and sold as trophies to sex-tourists, local officials and businessmen where they suffer sexual terrors and brutality that steal their childhood, sometimes even their lives. They experience nightmares that leave them emotionally, physically and psychologically scarred for life. Sometimes, as broken young women they finish up here, in Australia, in the underground, illegal sex industry. Help give these children their lives back.


The Sunlight Foundation Inc is established to relieve the distress of children in Cambodia, and Asia generally, particularly young children rescued from prostitution and sex slavery, in conjunction with local organizations and other charities on the ground in these areas, including by:

Consulting with government departments and agencies in these countries;

Providing direct and indirect, fully accountable funding for prevention of trafficking, rehabilitation, and local projects directly beneficial to these children;

Funding and supporting educational programs including vocational training to enhance the opportunity of employment;

Funding medical and health programs and services for rescued children;

Funding residential care, nutrition for vulnerable children; and

Supporting the United Nations Convention on the rights of a child, 1990.
