Human Trafficking is being deceived or taken against your will, brought, sold and exploited.

 

It is a system based on greed, control and power. Traffickers exploit the desire amongst the vulnerable. Traffickers create an intimate point of sale, making promises of progress like education, a new start and future choices.
