Campaigns on three specific issues that are components of global human trafficking. Through these campaigns we proposes realistic interventions and offer activits practical ways to take action.
Human trafficking is the third largest criminal industry in the world bringing in more than $32 billion dollars in revenue. If we want to stop trafficking, we have to make it less profitable. Stop the Traffik is the only intelligence-led prevention organization working to subvert the money flow and identify the global trafficking routes.
Traffickers exploit need. The people they prey on are those struggling with poverty, desperate to improve their lot in life. Often, it is the women and girls who are lured into the sex trade with empty promises of money and travel, of well-paid jobs as cleaners, au pairs, waitresses, bartenders or models. In West Africa, for example, it is the children of the poor, especially boys, who are drawn into the cocoa plantations of the Ivory Coast (Côte d'Ivoire) with empty promises of food and money. Before they know it, these people - people with the same hopes, needs and dreams as us - have been trapped, sold, shipped off and forced into a life of unimaginable humiliation and suffering.
