Modern Slavery

While slavery was abolished more than a century ago, the truth is evident that it is more prevalent today than ever – in the form of human trafficking. In fact, there are an estimated 27 million people currently in slavery, or bondage, around the world, and only 1% of these people are ever rescued. In Africa, 4 out of every 1 000 people are victims of trafficking, with females (55%) and adults (74%) most likely to fall victim to such crime.
