Human Trafficking

Program Overview

Out of a reported 4 million people who are trafficked annually both within and outside their country, 80% are women and girls and 50% are children. Over 90% of trafficked persons are sexually exploited. As part of UNANIMA’s work on the NGO Committee to Stop Trafficking in Persons and the NGO Working Group on Girls, we pursue the recognition and protection of the rights of these women and children. We also have an ongoing international campaign to STOP THE DEMAND for Trafficking in Women and Children.

UNANIMA is also cited on the Bakhita Initiative, a site that organizes and disseminates material on advocacy and educational resources from various religious congregations of women religious.
