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
In the initial phase of the project, The Human Project team will be producing regional and country reports to raise awareness of the trends trafficking in women around the world. The factsheets will include:
Background and context setting
Common social, economic and political driving factors in the region
Focus on the demographics of a potential victim
Focus on the demographics of a ‘typical’ trafficker, and their relationship to the victim
Trafficking patterns and methods of recruitment
The Human Project will use the research on trends and recruitment tactics to facilitate early intervention and preventative awareness raising at a local level. We will ensure that women and girls are more aware of recruitment tactics and lessen their potential to become victims of trafficking themselves.
