In Research, it is found that if 68% of people are trapped with human trafficking then 26% of them are children and 55% are women and girls.
Sex Trafficking: Traffickers made sex trafficking or prostitution, a horrible and dreadful business to make money. Girls and women forcefully pushed in this business to sell themselves to make earnings. These traffickers can be the one who she loved romantically, her parents, a family member, neighbor or the one she trusted for his lies of providing job. We all know, many girls are very impressed with the limelight of big screen. Hence, they want themselves there and try for dancing, modeling and acting but before they reach to their dreams they get trapped by the pimps.
Labor Trafficking: Traffickers makes fake promises with victims of providing job and education but push them in laboring with little or no money and as they have no other option rather than tolerate abuse so they continue with working like that.
Sometimes, these heartless people remove organs from victim’s body to sell and make them physically challenged to be appropriate for begging at roadside.
