Fighting the Exploitation of Children
Just Right Recycling is a social enterprise business that has a dual mandate: to be profitable and to be a catalyst for societal change. Our business grew out of a desire to help make a difference in our world and out of a passion to help fight the exploitation of children. To this end, the charity Scrap Cars not Kids was founded in 2012.
Just Right Recycling's charitable giving goes primarily to Scrap Cars not Kids, a charity that raises funds to fight the exploitation of children, including human trafficking and sex trafficking.
One of the important non-profit organizations Scrap Cars not Kids supports financially is Ratanak International, headquartered in Burnaby.
Founded by retired RCMP Forensic Scientist Brian McConaghy, Ratanak International has been helping Cambodian people rebuild their country since 1990, with a focus on caring for orphans and exploited children; providing medical services and education; helping families in crisis; and improving sanitation and agricultural development.
Chris Wiens and his wife Jane became acutely aware of child exploitation through the work of their close friend and Just Right Recycling business partner Brian Falls.
Brian Falls, his wife Sheri and their family lived in Thailand for 3 1/2 years where they worked in an orphanage for children with HIV or AIDS. Their son Sam was adopted from the Thailand orphanage.
Child exploitation in the forms of human trafficking and sex trafficking is a huge and complex worldwide issue in our day.
