Sex Trafficking

Sex trafficking is a form of modern slavery in which someone coerces or deceives another person into commercial sexual exploitation for profit. Any child sold for sex is considered a victim of sex trafficking by nature of their age. Simply, it is sexual violence as a business. The nightmare of sex trafficking thrives when law enforcement cannot or does not protect vulnerable children and women.

Cybersex trafficking is also on the rise as internet access everywhere increases.

Pedophiles anywhere in the world can direct live sexual abuse of boys and girls hidden in private homes or internet cafes.

ELSA’S STORY: A SURVIVOR DEFINED BY STRENGTH

“Blaming poverty for crimes like this is convenient—it seems to make trafficking a problem beyond our control. But I strongly believe that poverty is just one of the factors that makes people vulnerable to being trafficked, and that trafficking still exists because an effective public justice system doesn’t in my country.”
