CHILD TRAFFICKING

Human trafficking has become the 2nd largest criminal activity in the world. At any given time, an estimated 20.9 million people are victims of trafficking.

1 in 4 victims are children. 

According to UNICEF, child victims of trafficking are recruited, transported, transferred, harbored or received for the purpose of exploitation. They may be forced to work in sweatshops, on construction sites or in houses as domestic servants; on the streets as child beggars, in wars as child soldiers, on farms, in traveling sales crews or in restaurants and hotels. Some are forced to work in brothels and strip clubs or for escort and massage services.

Child trafficking happens anywhere in the world. The United States is considered one of the top destination points for victims of child trafficking and exploitation.

Education and awareness are desperately needed to stop vulnerable children from being trafficked. Join us in creating a series of narrative media aimed at educating teenagers and families on trafficking.

Films can be pivotal to raising awareness and educating communities on what trafficking looks like and the techniques traffickers use to recruit victims. Artists for Change Founder, Julia Verdin was kind enough to give us a copy of her film “Lost Girls.” It has been very helpful in encouraging audiences to be hands on with support of our charity and get involved. The film has also been a great tool to use for the educational work we do raising awareness among various sectors in our local community. At The Lily Trust, we don’t have the budget or filmmaking knowledge to create this important media ourselves. We are delighted that Artists for Change will be creating more educational media. We need the support of skilled filmmakers to provide us these valuable media tools.
