World Day Against Trafficking in Persons

According to a global report on trafficking in persons, almost a third of all human trafficking victims worldwide, are children. About 71 % of the total population are women and girls who are trafficked for sexual slavery. The remaining 29% being the male, are forced into hard labour.
However, one thing is common in the stories of these victims; the offer to leave the shores of the country for a better life did not come entirely from a stranger. The recruiters form a trafficking chain through which the individuals are passed on till they get to their destination where they are exposed to a life very different from what they were promised back home.
The recruiters are most times people who know the victims very well, people with the ability to clear the road of every debris and hurdle using a mere mixture of sweet words, enough to convince a young one who wants to grow and earn enough money to save his or her family from poverty.

Sometimes parents are coerced into convincing their children to embark on an assumed transformation journey which finally ends up deforming them mentally, psychologically, emotionally and sometimes physically.

Its world’s day against trafficking in persons,You too can save someone!
