According to the ILO, $150 million a year is the revenue of forced labor, “Forced labor in the private economy generates US$ 150 billion in illegal profits per year” (ILO), this number tells a fact of how big the human trafficking is.

These exploited children don’t get to develop the same as children who live in “normal” child’s lifestyle. The trafficked children don’t get to enjoy the same pleasures as other children, they don’t play, they don’t learn and their lives are filled with lists of things that they don’t get to do. Most children their age would be going to school, playing with friends and involved with extracurricular activities.

There is still much knowledge and awareness to be gained from working with survivors of sex trafficking, and child sex trafficking specifically, there is significant hope that simply the act of gathering information about their experiences will help survivors being the journey of processing their trauma.
