Founder Sompop Jantraka to receive prestigious Wallenberg Medal

We are proud to announce that DEPDC founder Sompop Jantraka will accept the Wallenberg Medal at the University of Michigan on March 13, 2008, for his humanitarian efforts in combating human trafficking. 

The Executive Committee of the Wallenberg Endowment recognizes Sompop Jantraka’s work as founder of the Development and Education Programme for Daughters and Communities Centre (DEPDC), which has made a profound difference in the lives of many hundreds of young women at risk of sexual slavery and exploitation. By directing energy to these issues in the wider Mekong region, he continues to carry forward this critically important humanitarian work. 

Congratulations, Sompop!

  1. Congratulations Sompop!

    This is well deserved recognition for the wonderful work that you do.

    I live in Los Angeles, and cannot go to Michigan to see your acceptance speech. I was wondering if you will be having any other events in America during this trip to give presentations or do some fundraising. If you have a planned event in California, I really would like to meet you!
