Human trafficking is used to exploit vulnerable populations all over the world in different ways. Churches and faith-based groups have responded to these various forms of exploitation by working with fellow stakeholders in aspects of prevention, protection, prosecution and partnership, catering for vulnerable communities, victims and rescued survivors. At this time of pandemic, continuous collaborative programs with stakeholders at a variety of levels have been implemented.
The first webinar of this series focused on the online sexual exploitation of children (OSEC) in the Philippines, and in this session, we highlight the anti-trafficking work of IJM partners and their collaborative efforts. Talitha Kum, an international network of consecrated persons against human trafficking, shares information on its anti-trafficking programs and regional collaborations in Asia. Made in Hope Phils – She Works, Inc., a faith-based organisation that trains trafficked women survivors, presents its partnership programs on leadership development and economic empowerment of survivors.
