We know that awareness raising campaigns and education have a positive impact and can prevent human trafficking and exploitation. Human trafficking and exploitation is all around us, in the open. It is vital that we raise awareness amongst wider society about how to spot the signs of human trafficking and how to report in order to help potential victims.
Many people are uneducated on spotting the signs and knowing who to report it to and how. By being shown step by step how to be an advocate for change and take action on things that matter, our student ambassadors will then be equipped to do this in their everyday lives and bit by bit, disrupt the trafficking industry. We believe that this programme will spark a chain reaction, starting with the student ambassadors who will then educate the public and their peers, to help shape the future where we live in a society where human trafficking no longer exists
The more people understand what human trafficking really is and how it manifests itself, the more effectively we can help victims and bring traffickers to justice.
Our ultimate goal is to eradicate abuse, exploitation and trafficking by 2030, contributing to the elimination of modern-day slavery and the achievement of UN SDG Target 16.2 ‘to end abuse, exploitation, trafficking, torture and all forms of violence against children
