Biographical history

The Future Group was created in the summer of 2000 with the aim of working with governments, non-governmental organizations, businesses and other people in areas of the world affected by an international crisis. Their first project was to send a team of four people to Cambodia in May-July 2001 to tackle the problems of child sex slavery and trafficking. The team members were Benjamin Perrin, Shuvaloy Majumdar, Nicholas Gafuik and Stephanie Andrews. Their project had five parts: building relationships between the non-governmental organizations already at work in Cambodia, developing an education program against child prostitution targeted at high-risk children, running a responsible tourism campaign, facilitating the establishment of drop-in shelters and writing a report on the situation, actions taken and proposals. The final report was published and distributed to the international community, businesses, NGOs, media and the Government of Cambodia.
