Roughly 1.2 million children are trafficked every year, and this number doesn’t include the approximately 20.9 million souls who have already been enslaved.
Children separated from parental care are particularly vulnerable to becoming sexually exploited and trafficked. Poverty, a lack of trafficking awareness and education, children aging out of orphanages, as well as natural disasters and wars, all contribute to the risk of children becoming victims of slavery.
As an organization dedicated to trauma prevention and intervention, with a history of responding to natural disasters, we have become acutely aware of the need for trafficking prevention and awareness as part of our training and education curriculum in disaster zones, as well as to the caregivers of orphaned and vulnerable children.
Parents and other caregivers are often unaware of the dangers, when offers of education and a better life are dangled in front of them by locals, foreigners, aid workers, military, officials, and other potential traffickers.
To this end, we have made a commitment to fight against children being taken captive to sexual exploitation and trafficking, by providing trafficking prevention and education for those involved in natural disasters, as well as to the caregivers of orphaned, and vulnerable children.
We have a 4 fold commitment to trafficking prevention.
Donate here to help aid in trafficking prevention to orphaned and vulnerable children, and to provide a rapid response to natural disasters.
