New Regional Office for Nvader

Nvader is excited to announce that it is stepping into a new phase of its evolution with the relocation of the Head Office from Christchurch, New Zealand to Thailand.

This move comes as a result of the hard work put in by its team over the last 5 years.  Nvader was registered as a charitable trust in 2011 and since grown into an organisation playing a significant part of the fight against human trafficking in South East Asia.

Nvader’s vision is to strategically combat sex trafficking to transform lives and culture.

In 2015 alone Nvader participated in 25 successful convictions that totalled 244 years jail time.  This equates to approximately 15% of Thailand’s overall trafficking cases (based on 2015 Trafficking in Persons report, pg 332).  The relocation will enable us to carry on this momentum in a more efficient manner.

Says CEO Justin Boswell: “As an organisation we have always been focused on professionalism, efficiency and key partnerships whilst using resources responsibly. To continue achieving our goals it’s become apparent we need our head office to be located closer to the countries we are working in.” 

“Our move to Thailand not only makes good economic sense, it enables Nvader to focus on what we do well - good investigations and securing prosecutions.  Tearfund will continue to support us by fundraising and communicating our work to the New Zealand public.”

Boswell says that Daniel Walker, will remain in New Zealand with his family.  “As one of the founders Daniel has been a huge part of getting Nvader off the ground and establishing a team that can carry Nvaders’ vision into the future.”  Two of the founding team remain with Nvader.  Alongside them the staff are positioned well to build on this firm foundation and ensure the continued success of the organisation.  The Board and staff  wish Daniel all the very best in his future endeavours.

Nvader wants to take this opportunity to also acknowledge the contribution of our supporters who have enabled us to get to this point. They are a vital part of achieving our shared goal of disrupting the criminal networks that allow trafficking to exist.

The organisation is proud to have been birthed here in New Zealand and will continue to use the strengths of our unique Kiwi culture, including the highly effective New Zealand policing methods which have served Nvader so well, as it builds into the future.
