Anti-trafficking and Modern Slavery
The United Nations defines human trafficking as:
'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.’
Sadly Pakistan continues to be a country where young women, in particular, are at risk of being trafficked for sex purposes and young men for forced labour. Each year material is produced to help raise awareness to the risks associated with this and workshops held to further educate people about the dangers. We continue to work hard to educate people about this challenge and hope that this will save one young girl or boy from this fate.
Anti-human trafficking Sunday is held each year in September. The material for the 2018 campaign is available on this page. The 2019 resources will be uploaded as they become available.
