Transcript of Human Trafficking & Occupational Therapy

Every 26 seconds a child is taken to be used as a sexual slave (Destiny Rescue, 2012).

Human trafficking should not be glanced over as another statistic. Human trafficking is a global problem that profits 32 billion US dollars per year (Destiny Rescue, 2012).
Occupational Deprivation
These children DO NOT HAVE A CHOICE! They are stripped away of a childhood that should consist of play occupations (Destiny Rescue, 2012:Wilcock, 1998).
RESCUED - Occupational Justice
This path leads children to be empowered by their participation in meaningful occupation. Through one organisation, teenagers are enabled to perform employable skills in occupations such as; cooking, waitressing, hairdressing and sewing. This then prevents someone in desperation of money, food or accommodation to go back to sexual slavery and be stripped away from meaningful occupations (Destiny Rescue, 2012).
These children now have freedom to choose meaningful occupations. They are prime examples of communicating the value of participation in meaningful occupations.

Path 2
Children who are not rescued, will live a life where they are owned by somebody. They will grow up in an illegal industry that promotes them as an object (Destiny Rescue, 2012).
