About Human Trafficking


Human trafficking is a worldwide problem - men, women, children, everyone is affected.

What is Human Trafficking?

Human trafficking is the business of modern-day slavery, where men, women and children are bought, sold, controlled and/or exploited for the profit of others. Exploitation can mean forced labor or services, prostitution, or organ removal. The victim does not profit by performing any acts or services. While the victim may initially agree to some of these acts, the agreement is under false pretenses and deception. Eventually the victim’s rights are violated and the victim becomes unable to change or control their situation. Human trafficking is a demand-driven industry that is driven in part by socio-economic factors, cultural conditions, gender inequality and lack of information. One Less believes that human trafficking can be abolished by targeting both demand and supply for this industry.

Don't be misguided by myths and misconceptions about Human Trafficking. Stay well informed.
