WHY HUMAN TRAFFICKING?

Definition of Human Trafficking
(according to the UN)
Trafficking in Persons is the recruitment, transport, transfer, harbouring or receipt of a person by such means as threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud or deception, (of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person,) for the purpose of exploitation. Human Trafficking can include, but does not require movement/change of location.

It affects every country of the world, as countries of origin, transit or destination – or even a combination of all.

VICTIMS OF TRAFFICKING CAN BE ANY AGE, GENDER, RACE OR SOCIAL STANDING.

US$ 150 BILLION

It is the Fastest growing global industry, generating U$D 150 Billion a year.

35.8 MILLION

There are an estimated 35,800,000 people enslaved in the world.

76%

76% of transactions for sex with underage girls are contacted via the internet.

2 MILLION

An estimated 2 million children are subjected to prostitution in the global commercial sex trade. The average victims age are from 11 to 14 years old.

Supply and demand

Human Trafficking exists, because there is a demand for its supply.

Illegal child pornography exists because someone wants to see it. A pimp can force a girl to sell her body because someone is paying for it. Forced slave labour goes on, because we demand more of its products… products like chocolate, shrimps, coffee, toys, clothing and fabric; to name just a few. Be aware of the products and services you purchase to reduce the footprint of slave labour.
