Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation has been addressing human trafficking since 2005. While the term “human trafficking” covers a wide range of crimes, our work is in two specific areas: the trafficking of children into exploitative labour and the trafficking of Vietnamese women and girls into sexual exploitation and forced marriages in China.
To address these issues Blue Dragon has a team of lawyers, psychologists and social workers who work closely with law enforcement agencies, schools, government services agencies, and communities. Together, we identify cases of trafficking, find the victims and their traffickers, rescue victims, and provide all the necessary services for their successful recovery and reintegration into their communities.
In cases where the trafficker is arrested, we collaborate with police to support the investigation of the case and then represent the victims in court to ensure they are not further traumatised during the process, and to see that justice is served through appropriate sentences and compensation claims.
This fact sheet captures some of what we know about human trafficking and Blue Dragon’s approach to countering it.
