OUR BRIEF STORY
Agape International Missions (AIM) was founded on the ground in Cambodia in 1988 as a humanitarian aid and church planting organization in Cambodia. Since 2005, our ministries have focused on ending the evil of child sexual slavery.
AIM takes a holistic approach to Fighting Trafficking, Restoring Victims and Transforming Communities, in order to defeat trafficking. Our projects prevent, rescue, restore and reintegrate. AIM is guided by a distinct philosophy that God anointed the Church through the power of Jesus to overcome evil.
We have a US Headquarters in California with administrative staff and local, in-country staff for our programs.
