The HUG Project

Director & Founder

Founder and Director of the HUG Project Thailand, Boom Mosby is dedicated to preventing, protecting, and restoring child victims of sexual abuse and human trafficking. In June 2017, she was honored by the U.S. State Department as a TIP Report Hero as part of their 2017 Trafficking in Persons Report. Ms. Mosby is the first Thai woman to receive this distinction.

Career highlights include the opening of Child Advocacy Center (CAC) in Chiang Mai - the first children's advocacy center in Southeast Asia- which she now directs; and the formation of TICAC (Thailand Internet Crimes Against Children) task force- in which she participates actively. As a TICAC member, Ms. Mosby collaborates with law enforcement and other agencies to facilitate the investigation and prosecution of Internet-facilitated crimes against children in Thailand. TICAC and CAC were mentioned in the TIP Report three years in a row.

Ms. Mosby's current functions include providing investigative support through fact-finding, case coordination, and consultations with various law enforcement, social work, NGO, and government officials; and conducting key forensic interviews with child victims of trafficking and sexual abuse. Her current objectives include promoting the expansion of the Child Advocacy Center concept throughout Thailand and advocating for a victim-centered approach.
