(Evaluation Mechanism)

United Nations
on Trafficking
Persons are
into leaving their communities through regular or irregular migration routes. Even if persons agree to leave their country, their
is taken away through the
use of deception

These persons are then exploited. They are not free to leave and are forced to work under conditions not agreed to, such as prostitution etc.
Social commentators estimate that as many as 27 million men, women, and children are victims of trafficking at any given time.
No country can claim that its borders are not affected in some way by trafficking. According to the US Department of State (USDS), an estimated 15,000 to 18,000 persons are trafficked into the United States every year for forced labour.
Trafficking in persons shall mean the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation.

Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of 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.
There is an increasing number of schemes used by human trafficking syndicates. Traffickers now routinely use the lure of lucrative jobs opportunities to target women and girls across the Region through websites.

It is anticipated that as the Region becomes a more networked society, the internet will increasingly facilitate the transnational marketing of sex workers
It is estimated that 2.5 million people worldwide are in forced labour as a result of trafficking

1.4 m -56% in Asia and Pacific

-270,000- 10.8% in industrialized countries

250,000- 10% in Latin America and the Caribbean

-230,000- 9.2% in Middle East and Northern Africa

- 200,000- 8% in transition countries such as South Africa

-130,000 – 5.2 in sub- Saharan countries
Estimated US$ 31.6 billion made from trafficking each year

At least 1.2 million children in the world have been trafficked into forced labour situation .

For example, children have been trafficked into the United Kingdom to sell counterfeit DVDs, work in ganja factories, work as domestic workers and in prostitution.

How does this affect Children?
Health Challenges

Emotional trauma can be caused by isolation and/or removal from families, homes, friends,schools and communities.

Emotional well‐being is often jeopardized by the psychological abuse (threats, isolation, and witnessing abuse of others) human trafficking survivors sustain.

Depression, hopelessness, guilt, shame, flashbacks, nightmares, loss of confidence, lower self‐esteem, and anxiety are common experiences of trafficking survivors.

Survivors of human trafficking may also experience emotional and social withdrawal or isolation.
These children may also be more likely to experience “symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder(PTSD), substance abuse, and suicide.”

Emotional Challenges
What can YOUth do?
Before you leave your Community, give the details of your destination to your family members.

Travel by government run buses, red plate taxis and not robots as much as possible.

Keep the telephone numbers of police and help line numbers with you.

Organize a fundraiser and donate the proceeds to an anti-trafficking organization.

Students: Take action on your campus. Join or establish a university or secondary school club to raise awareness about human trafficking and initiate action throughout your local community.

Share on social Media what you have learned about Human Trafficking

Why are people trafficked?

Conditions such as inhumane living conditions, poor diet and hygiene, ongoing physical abuse, and lack of access to health care and protection can result in long‐term health problems.

Unsafe sexual practices also contribute to health issues such as unplanned pregnancies, dangerous abortion practices and sexually transmitted diseases

Trafficked children often lack access to educational opportunities.

Learning may be impacted by their exhaustion from working long or late hours, the use of drugs or alcohol, or their lack of physical or emotional well‐being.

Both of the above can result in poor academic performance and delays in cognitive and psychological functioning.
