ASIA

Asia: Contrasts Are Only the Beginning

 

Asia is the world’s largest and most populous continent, covering about 30% of Earth’s total land area. Asia is notable for not only its overall size and population but its dense as well as barely populated regions within the continent of 4.4 [?] billion people. Asia has exhibited economic as well as population growth during the 20th century, but overall population growth has since fallen to world average levels. Given its size and diversity, the concept of Asia may actually have more to do with human than physical geography. Asia varies greatly across its regions with regard to ethnic groups, cultures, environments, economics, historical ties and government systems.

Cambodia: Sophie Wysocki

“My name is Sophie Wysocki and I live and work in Phnom Penh Cambodia serving with Agape International Missions (AIM)—a Christian anti-trafficking organization fighting for freedom and justice in Christ’s name. I serve as the English Academy Principal at AIM’s prevention project AIM School, in the small community of Svay Pak, which was formerly referred to as the epicenter for child sex trafficking. Our school serves as an outreach to children and youth who are at high risk for being trafficked or who come from poor households with no means of education.”  See below for more.

More About Sophie Wysocki

“Our hope is that through our school, we create a safe place for students where they can meet Jesus and experience His love and power. And through empowering our students with education, we hope to instill self-worth and value to our students as well as positively change the way the community views the youth in order to break the cycle of child sex slavery. We also work hard to pour into our local Cambodian teachers, empowering them in leadership and professional skills, as they bring the love of Christ to their own community and change their community through Christ’s power.”
