The Story Of Kru Nam: The Inspiration Behind Not For Sale

Six years ago, Not For Sale Co-Founder and CEO, David Batstone, met Kru Nam in Thailand, an abolitionist working on meager resources, who still managed to show incredible dedication in the fight against modern-day slavery. Despite her personal struggles, she continued to work, undeterred by the setbacks, to provide a future for hundreds of stateless children in the Golden Triangle region of Thailand. So inspired by her story, she soon became the catalyst behind the creation of Not For Sale. This is her story.
