Human Trafficking and Slavery2019-02-22T04:39:31+10:00


Working to meet the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals 8

Trafficking in persons is a serious crime and a grave violation of human rights. Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad. Almost every country in the world is affected by trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit or destination for victims.

Exploitation of trafficked victims includes, at a minimum, the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs.

More than 40 million people around the world were victims of modern slavery in 2016.

151.6 million are estimated to be in child labour

We partner with the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation and Bachpan Bachao Andolan to rescue children from bonded labour and servitude. Over 400 children are rescued and given immediate protection and care each year.

Contemporary slavery takes various forms and affects people of all ages gender and races.
It includes:

  • Child slavery
  • Human trafficking
  • Forced Labour
  • Bonded labour
  • Forced marriage
  • Descent based

114 million child labourers are below the age of 14

72 million children are in hazardous work that directly endangers their health, safety and moral development

15.5 million children are in domestic work worldwide – the overwhelming majority of them are girls

300,000 children are estimated to serve as child soldiers, some even younger than 10 years old


As long as poverty, injustice & inequality persist, none of us can truly rest.
