Human trafficking is a global issue that often impacts the most vulnerable people among us. 1 in 4 victims of modern slavery are children, joining the estimated 40.3 million people living in modern slavery today around the world. We are partnering with organizations across the globe to address this violation of basic human rights through prevention education, rescue efforts, rehabilitation, and aftercare support.
What is Human Trafficking?
The United Nations defines human trafficking as the act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harboring, or receiving a person by means of coercion, deception or abuse of vulnerability, for the purpose of exploitation. This exploitation includes sex slavery, child soldiers, and forced labor, all of which violate people’s rights and dignity. Women and children are often the ones taken advantage of because of their more vulnerable place in society, causing them to be 79% of the victims, according to the UN.
What is Being Done?
Human trafficking is best addressed through cooperation of governments, communities, schools, faith groups, and families. We partner with organizations working to end human trafficking by empowering people through education, vocational training, counseling, safe housing, and working with communities to raise awareness in an effort to prevent trafficking in the first place. So far, we have had the opportunity to work in 5 countries, rescuing 150 people, and providing prevention education to 2,522 people.
