MAKING A DIFFERENCE TO THE GLOBAL LANDSCAPE OF ABUSE, EXPLOITATION AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
24.9 million people are trapped in exploitation and trafficking around the world (ILO)
1/3 of detected trafficking victims are children (UNODC)
1 in 8 of the world’s children are sexually abused before the age of 18 (Stoltenbourgh et al)
