UNICEF’S End Trafficking Project

There are more than 5.5 million children worldwide who are used for forced labor and child trafficking.  Human trafficking has been reported in all 50 of the United States. The victims suffer from physical, emotional and sexual abuse.   This horrific practice can include prostitution, pornography, and sex tourism as well as labor for domestic service, factory or construction work, and migrant farming.

.

UNICEF is working to bring an end to child trafficking. Here are some ways you can help:

  1. Join or start a UNICEF club at your high school or
    college. Visit unicefusa.org/highschool or
    unicefusa.org/campusinitiative
  2. Find out how many slaves work for you. Slavery Foot
    print’s website allows consumers to understand how
    their purchases may connect them. Take the site’s survey and
    use their action center and mobile app to raise your voice for
    ethically sourced products. Visit slaveryfootprint.org.
  3. Keep Learning. Visit unicefusa.org/endtrafficking and

    other organizations are doing to protect children.
