May 21, 2009: The Coalition to Abolish Modern-day Slavery in Asia (CAMSA) would like to recognize the Malaysian nonprofit Tenaganita for their continuing support for and partnership in the effort to halt human trafficking.
Tenaganita considers migrant rights to be human rights and promotes a culture where human rights are embraced, valued, and protected. Tenaganita’s mission is to undertake research, advocacy, and action to prevent, solve, and address grave abuses that happen to migrants and refugees. To do this, the nonprofit mobilizes people, carries out campaigns, conducts research, advocates, and raises money for its work.
No one should be thought of as apart, and outside the rights that this or any country gives its citizens, according to Tenaganita’s deeply felt vision. Tenaganita sees a world, a country, and a people who work for a society that cares about and upholds the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
