The issue

It’s estimated that 4.8 million people are trapped in sex trafficking. Women and girls are disproportionately affected and account for 99% of victims in the commercial sex industry.*  Sexual exploitation is when someone is deceived, coerced or forced to take part in sexual activity. Ways in which someone could be sexually exploited include but aren’t limited to: prostitution, brothels, escort agencies, pole/lap dancing, forced marriage, web camming, phone sex lines, internet chat rooms, mail order brides, pornography and sex tourism.  

The sex trafficking industry is worth millions. We believe #HerValue is greater. Our fight against trafficking does not stop at Christmas. 

Our approach 

At STOP THE TRAFFIK, we are working both nationally and globally to prevent human trafficking. We develop and implement intelligence-led training and campaigns that identify human trafficking trends and hotspots. In partnership with Facebook, local law enforcement, government, financial institutions and rescue organisations we run geo-targeted awareness raising campaigns in known hotspots, which have so far reached nearly 6 million people. This year we have run sex trafficking campaigns in the USA, Kenya, Uganda and are on track to launch one in the UK before Christmas.
