In these 5 seconds, there is one more victim in Human Trafficking.
Trafficking in Persons as the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. (UNODC, 2000)
The Girls’ Brigade Hong Kong is an international organization, we nurture females their unique quality characters, building them up as leaders, through serving the community. In recent years, we have been focusing on women's rights issues, such as anti-human trafficking, etc. We have visited Cambodia in the past and have worked with other organizations to write "Anti-Human Trafficking Teaching Kit" for local students to learn more about this issue. Otherwise, we held workshops in schools and churches with positive feedbacks.
