Trafficking in Women and Children

The number of people migrating for work is on the rise with women constituting at least half those seeking to benefit from labour opportunities abroad. Yet the very act of migration carries immense risks. Those seeking work abroad often lack the information to make informed choices and are vulnerable to exploitation.

It is however, most often most prevalent among vulnerable populations including women, youth and children.
