Combating Human Trafficking – Learn and Take Action

Human trafficking is a modern form of slavery. It is the illegal trade of people for the purposes of commercial gain – through sexual exploitation and forced labor. According to a September 2017 report from the International Labor Organization (ILO) and Walk Free Foundation, an estimate of 40.3 million people from approximately 136 countries are victims of modern day slavery; 24.9 million in forced labor and 15.4 million in forced marriage. 71 percent of modern slavery victims are female, and one in four victims are children.
