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.

How does something classify as human Trafficking?

It affects almost every country in the world, as either an origin, a transit or a destination country – or even a combination of all 3.

Human trafficking does not discriminate – VICTIMS CAN BE of ANY AGE, GENDER, RACE OR SOCIAL STANDING.

Globally it is the Fastest growing illegal industry, with millions of people trapped around the world today.

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.
