Human trafficking is the world’s fastest-growing criminal activity. Around 1.2 million children and over 22 million people in total are tricked into leaving their families or taken against their will every year, with the sole aim of exploiting them for profit.
In Nepal, a trafficking hotspot, more than 10,000 children are forced into servitude each year and sent as far afield as India, China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and Pakistan. The devastating earthquake of 2015 left many children homeless and orphaned, making them even more vulnerable. But even in more affluent countries, trafficking is rife, with 13,000 victims of modern slavery living in the UK alone. A third of these are children, many of whom are forced into crime.
One Family is tackling the root causes of this crisis and supporting survivors.
We are working with grassroots partners around the world, and the UK, to use technology to create scalable solutions to trafficking. Inlcuding our ground breaking app in Nepal, which is enabling people to quickly and safely report incidences to the police and get the support they need to protect their families.
Please join us in the fight to defeat trafficking and restore hope for a better future.
Always stronger together, we are One Family.
