Last year marked the 15th anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Palermo Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children. Despite this, at least 20.9 million adults and children are bought and sold worldwide into commercial sexual servitude, forced labour and bonded labour. Of these, women and girls make up 98% of victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation.

MISSION: TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND HOW IT OPERATES AROUND THE GLOBE.

International Women's Initiative’s The Human Project is looking at forms of human trafficking that disproportionately affect women and girls and the methods of recruitment that target these groups. We will help to create a world where women and girls can live free from exploitation and full of dignity.

WHAT WE ARE DOING

Other than awareness raising and education, The Human Project will work in collaboration with regional partners to establish a safe house for female trafficking survivors. The safe house will be a residential facility that will work to rehabilitate survivors through a programme specifically designed to support their recovery from trafficking. With the aid of psychological and physical support, after participants complete rehabilitation they will receive an educational scholarship to set them on a path of wellbeing and empowerment. The importance of an education, in particular for females, cannot be put into words. Many of the circumstances faced by women globally, including trafficking, would be minimised through education. With education comes empowerment.
