Human Trafficking Around the World


Human trafficking is the exploitation of a person for labor or sex, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion.  It is modern-day slavery.  Men, women, and children are forced to work everyday for little or no pay, in oppressive and abusive conditions.  Slavery exists in virtually every country around the world, and appears in many different forms, from child soldiers in Uganda, to brick workers in India, to prostituted children in Cambodia.  There are currently 27 million people in our world today living in slavery, half of which are children.*  The illicit trade in humans is a $32 billion a year industry, making it the fastest growing criminal activity.**  Human trafficking is ranked in the top three illegal trades, next to trafficking in drugs and weapons.**
