The Problem of Human Trafficking

An individual becomes susceptible to trafficking due to various risk factors like instability, violence, poor education, substance misuse, poverty, homelessness, unemployment, displacement, or isolation. These conditions increase a person’s chances of falling victim.


This occurs when a vulnerable individual is manipulated or forced into a situation of abuse. It can involve false job offers, deceitful romantic relationships, or being sold by someone they trust into labour or sex trafficking.


Even after escaping a trafficking situation, the trauma and original unresolved issues can lead to re-victimisation, perpetuating the cycle of trafficking.

The Solution to Human Trafficking (A21 Anti-Human Trafficking Organisation)

Education programmes, prevention resources, and awareness campaigns help people recognise and reduce the risk of trafficking. By knowing how to protect themselves and others, and having the tools to report suspicions, individuals are empowered to make safe decisions.


Working with governments and local authorities to free victims and convict traffickers involves hotlines, child advocacy centres, and professional training and legal assistance. Training frontline professionals to identify trafficking increases the chances of assisting victims. Ensuring survivors have access to justice is crucial in stopping traffickers from exploiting others.


Providing survivors with holistic aftercare, safe accommodation, and relocation services empowers them to rebuild their lives. With personalised care, psychological support, and job training, survivors can pursue new opportunities and reclaim their independence.
