Human trafficking is a serious crime that affects men, women and children around the world. It involves putting or keeping someone in an exploitative situation, usually for profit. Exploitation can involve situations including forced or debt-bonded labour, child labour, sexual exploitation, domestic servitude or armed conflict.
To reduce risk factors that contributes to human trafficking at the individual, community, and structural levels and to increase the protective factors and resilience of the most vulnerable families and individuals to prevent trafficking. Children and youth are most at risk of being trafficked so it is imperative to build life skills to protect themselves. This is accomplished through regular and meaningful participation in youth clubs.
