Giving hope to victims of human trafficking

Giving hope to victims of human trafficking | Human rights | Scoop.it
Ahead of the first World Day against Trafficking in Persons (30 July), we hear the harrowing experiences of human trafficking survivors, as well as their stories of hope thanks to the work of grassroots organizations helping the victims of this despicable trade. The UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking supports on-the-ground humanitarian, legal and financial aid to victims to help them start a new life free from slavery.
Sunita Millon's insight:

Let us all take action and send a strong message to all offenders and authorities that this has to end!

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Sunita Millon's insight:

Is this declaration just utopia or can we really give humans the right to have choice in their movements?  Human trafficking must stop ... but when?

Written in 1948 Article 4 of this declaration states "No one shall be held in slavery and slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms"....The Global report on Trafficking in Person published by UNODC proves otherwise.

Human trafficking takes away an individuals basic human rights. These rights are to be open and practiced by all without prejudice. The agreement that was made between Interpol and the International Organization for Migration will hopefully help prevent human trafficking from occurring in the future. Through the cooperation of these two agencies, the fight against such atrocities will become more unified and effective.

Carmen Nurse's curator insight, August 2, 2015 1:28 AM

A step up in the right direction to combat human  trafficking. The signing on of INTERPOL to collaborate with the Caribbean to assist in this venture is huge progress for greater success.The relevant  personnel will benefit and become more empowered through information exchange, capacity building training and implementation of joint projects Those involved in trafficking are doing so through networking, the call now is for similar organizations to collaborate to eradicate human trafficking at its earliest.

It includes: an overview of trafficking patterns; legal steps taken in response; and country-specific information on reported cases of trafficking in persons, victims, and prosecutions.

The findings in this report are shocking...79% of human trafficking is sexual exploitation with mostly women and girls...this should not be too surprising. What is shocking is that a disproportionate number of women are involved in human trafficking as traffickers ...former victims are perpetrators

Robbing a child of their childhood should be considered the biggest crime...Children have the right to be happy and have an eductation... not to be child soldiers and child prostitute or slave workers...
