STOP THE TRAFFIK (STT) is a pioneer in human trafficking prevention. STT views human trafficking as an illegal business reliant on: the recruitment of vulnerable people, demand for its services and the ability to move its profits unimpeded. By combining our unique data set on human trafficking with an intelligence-led approach, STT is actively undermining these three pillars that allow trafficking to continue.
Utilising global partnerships, STT has reached over 10 million people through geo-targeted social media campaigns. These are groups that our data set has identified as vulnerable to human trafficking. As a direct result of these campaigns, STT has evidenced a behavioural change within these targeted communities, signaling the difference between a person being exploited or not. By making it harder to recruit vulnerable people, STT increases the risk to traffickers and makes it harder for them to operate.
STT works with many businesses across multifarious sectors to stop trafficking in supply chains. We have mapped billions of pounds worth of procurement spend across over 50,000 suppliers. Working collaboratively with businesses to make them resilient to modern slavery impacts on trafficker’s ability to monopolize their operations. In addition, STT works with financial institutions to map out typologies and risk factors based on identifying traffickers’ behaviors, routes and hotspots. In doing this, STT is preventing traffickers from moving the profits of their crime and aiding in increased prosecutions. STT had its model independently evaluated in 2019, with results clearly showing that what we do works. Collaboration is key to our model and together with trusted partners, businesses, financial institutions, and communities, we are creating a world where people are not bought or sold.
