Victims’ Voices Lead the Way : Labour Trafficking

Many domestic workers find themselves in situations of servitude,caught in a hapless cycle of unpaid wages, imprisonment by their employers, threats of being turned over to the authorities if they dare to escape. In many cases  these workers are abused both physically and psychologically.  Most come from impoverished families and their simple dream was to earn a decent income just to put food on the table. ; or put their children through school.  #EndHumanTrafficking

Victims’ Voices Lead the way : Sex Trafficking

When foreign women are rounded up during a raid by authorities, many think ‘Oh they deserve it.’ ‘Why do they insist on coming in to the country illegally and resort to doing THAT work?’ In fact, this is far from the truth. Many are lured by false promises, made to think they are going to be working at a supermarket or restaurant. They are NOT willing victims. This is what happens when the right person turns out to be the wrong choice.    #EndHumanTrafficking

Poverty & Human Trafficking

Poverty – a compelling factor in the human trafficking industry. Human trafficking occurs in every country in the world, and it is a thriving industry driven by poverty. Those living in poverty, driven by their desire for a better life – traffickers capitalise on this desire by offering promises of employment and better living conditions. They are drawn, only to find they’ve been deceived – they are not given the work or the terms & conditions promised, many are not given valid work permits, making them even more vulnerable to exploitation.  The pandemic has had  a disproportionate effect on the poor, as more lose their jobs  and new opportunities are scarce, rendering them even more vulnerable to exploitation by human traffickers.   #EndHumanTrafficking
