Global Exploitation

Around 50 million individuals globally are suffering from exploitation and trafficking. Of these, approximately 25% are children.

Legal Gaps

Only about half of US states have laws that protect sexually exploited children from being prosecuted for prostitution.

Rescue Is Critical

Less than 1% of victims of child trafficking are identified and sucessfully rescued.

Rehabilitation

Without rehabilitation treatment, over 80% of child trafficking survivors re-encounter exploitation or criminal activities within one year of rescue.

 DEFINING THE CRISIS

CHILD TRAFFICKING.

Child trafficking involves the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of children for the purpose of exploitation. This egregious violation of human rights strips children of their dignity, autonomy, and future, forcing them into labor, prostitution, or other forms of severe abuse.

 SCOPE AND DEMOGRAPHICS

WHO IS IMPACTED?

Trafficking is a global issue that crosses geographic, ethnic, and socio-economic boundaries, impacting children everywhere. While it affects girls disproportionately, a substantial number of boys are also subjected to exploitation.

 THE CONDITIONS THAT FOSTER TRAFFICKING

ENVIRONMENTS THAT ENABLE TRAFFICKING.

Traffickers often thrive in environments where social, economic, or political instability prevails. They exploit gaps in law enforcement and social services, preying on the most vulnerable populations. By understanding these conditions, we can better target preventative measures and disrupt the environments that harbor such exploitation.

 PROACTIVE MEASURES.
