Ending human trafficking

What is human trafficking?

Human trafficking is when a person is tricked or forced into a situation where they'll be exploited for profit.

Children, women and men around the world are trafficked into slavery including forced labour, forced marriage, domestic servitude and sexual exploitation.

Right now, 10 million children are trapped in slavery. That’s more than the population of London. Robbed of their freedom, education and childhood, they face abuse and violence.

“I want one thing: what I have gone through to not happen to any other child.”

- Kashi, survivor of domestic servitude and sex trafficking

How does IJM help stop human trafficking?

IJM is working to combat child trafficking, sex trafficking, labour trafficking, cross-border trafficking and online sexual exploitation of children.

We’re working with survivors, supporters and authorities to bring victims of trafficking to safety, provide trauma-informed care to survivors, bring traffickers to justice and we invest in systemic change to see people not abused in the first place.

Together, we're building a movement that is already seeing powerful results. With authorities, we’ve brought 76,000 people to safety from trafficking and violence, and seen child trafficking decrease by up to 86% in places where we’ve worked.

You can be part of this movement for freedom.

“I will not have to be scared because of my past. I will hold my head high. Always.” - Kashi

Freedom from trafficking means that people can pursue their dreams.

But right now, there are millions of people trapped in slavery. You can help end trafficking.
