Our highly trained transit monitors are a crucial part of our anti-trafficking strategy to prevent vulnerable men, women, and children from ever experiencing the exploitation and abuse of this horrible crime.
Somoe* is one of our monitors in Kenya. After her personal and very traumatic experience with human trafficking, she joined our team and works every day to prevent others from enduring the horrors of being trafficked into slavery. Watch this brief video as she shares her story and her personal determination to help stop this crime, stating, "Now I want to help others because there are many..."
Not for sale
Human life is priceless. It doesn't matter where you live, what you look like, or what your social status is. Men, women, and children should not be for sale. Unfortunately, 40.3 million people live in some form of modern-day slavery today because of human trafficking (Global Slavery Index). Thankfully, some, like Somoe, are able to find a way out. However, this is often not the case for the vast majority of those who become victims.
In order to help fight this crime, we train and place monitors, like Somoe, at borders and transit points to identify and stop trafficking as it is occurring, BEFORE beautiful lives are exploited and sold into slavery. To date, our 249 monitors have been instrumental in preventing over 20,000 people from becoming victims of human trafficking.
