The Imprint Project is a program that focuses on life skills, spiritual formation, general education, and vocational seamstress training.


By partnering with organizations that serve vulnerable women and rescue girls from brothels, we are able to provide aftercare resources and education. We hope to bring restoration to these students and help them reintegrate back into their communities. Many graduates start their own tailoring business or find work at a workshop: others find work as a seamstress at BYTAVI.

The Beginning

A 15 year-old Cambodian girl was asked to stamp her thumbprint signature on agreement papers. The agreement would have forced her into a life of servitude and bondage to a stranger. The girl’s uncle needed money, and saw no other way.

The story has a happy ending, though. CGI was able to intervene and provide another option for this family. But many stories don’t end this way. The signature imprint of a finger can sign away freedom forever. We’ve created the Imprint Project as a way to fight back.


We invest in each of these girls by teaching them practical habits for a healthy lifestyle and vital skills for generating a stable income.


Each student is assigned a social worker to support and encourage them and their entire family for a holistic approach. 


Spiritual formation and Bible studies are an integral part of the Imprint curriculum.


Sok came from a poor community and her home life was difficult. Sometimes her family did not have enough money for daily food. Sok was sad but willingly dropped out of secondary school to help support her family.

At the time, Sok felt hopeless.

A friend introduced her to Center for Global Impact and Sok applied for the CTC program. As she began as a student at CTC, Sok was excited to experience so many new things- new knowledge, skills and friends. She was also impacted by how kind, friendly, and loving everyone at CGI was to her.

Sok grew in confidence and found a new hope for her future.

The CTC training includes internships at local restaurants to gain more experience. Sok was recently hired full time by a restaurant where she interned. Sok is thankful to be able to use the skills she learned to find a job that she enjoys and to be able to support her family financially.

“Through my time with CGI, I learned to trust God. God has given me hope and confidence in myself. The first time I studied the Bible and learned about God’s love for me was through CGI and my life has been transformed. I hope that more girls who face hard situations like me will have a chance to see their lives transformed like I have.”
