Daughters and Sons - Preventing Child Trafficking in the Golden Triangle is a poignant documentary about the efforts of human rights activist, Sompop Jantraka, to combat child trafficking. The film opens with a pedophile who argues that having sex with a 10-year old girl is just the way things are in South East Asia. Jantraka passionately disagrees and has devoted his life to combating trafficking at its source by convincing families that education is a better alternative to selling their children. Compelling and insightful, Daughters and Sons conveys the urgent need to protect children before they are trafficked. In Jantrakas words, save them today because tomorrow is too late.

Three decades ago Akilah settled on a barren, deforested hillside, blighted with floods in the rainy season and fires in the dry season. Together with her late husband, Tacuma, they started a family and reforested over 125 acres, restoring health to the hills and the watershed just outside the capital city of Port-of-Spain. When her husband died, Akilah continued this great work, initiating the Fondes Amandes Community Reforestation Project (FACRP), training community members as stewards of the forests and waters. Today Fondes Amandes is a thriving village atop a flourishing forest where residents have planted over 60,000 seedlings during the past thirty years. The community is regularly visited by international dignitaries and Akilah is heralded as the Wangari Maathai of Trinidad & Tobago.
