Empowered 3000 vulnerable people to launch small businesses creating over 10000 jobs and sold over 250T products.

The problem – Human trafficking!

Human trafficking is a global problem affecting almost every county of the world. IOM (International Organisation for Migration) reports that over 500.000 people are trafficked across international boarders every year. Over 100.000 Nigerian women in search of better future prospects, have been trafficked to Europe and exploited as sex slaves (Ware Frau 2008). In other to get to Europe, many must travel through the desert to Morocco or Libya, for smugglers to transport them through the Mediterranean sea. Those who succeed to Europe either by boat or plane, are automatically asylum seekers with almost no rights. Shocked about the situation for asylum seekers in Europe and ashamed to return back to home communities as failures, they try to cope and never reveal their disappointments to their families and friends.

Trafficking occurs in different forms.

Trafficking primarily involves exploitation which comes in many forms, including: Forcing victims into prostitution Subjecting victims to slavery or involuntary servitude, compelling victims to commit sex acts for the purpose of creating pornography Misleading victims into debt bondage.

Children are affected.

According to some estimates, approximately 80% of trafficking involves sexual exploitation, and 19% involves labor exploitation. According to the U.S. State Department, 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year. More than 70 % are female and half are children.

3rd largest international crime.

Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking). It reportedly generates a profit of $32 billion every year. Of that number, $15.5 billion is made in industrialized countries.
