did you know?


  • An estimated 1.2 million children are trafficked each year. 
  • 800,000 people are trafficked across national borders, which does not include millions trafficked within their own countries. 
  • Approximately 80% of transnational victims are women and girls and up to 50% are minors.
  • Out of 12.3 million forced labour victims worldwide, around 2.4 million were trafficked.
  • After drug dealing, trafficking of humans is tied with arms dealing as the second-largest criminal industry in the world. 
This is happening right here in Australia, right now. It's time to make a stand and STOP human trafficking. To find out more, please visit stopthetraffik.org.au.
