1. Today we are going to look at a very serious problem called “human trafficking”. This is a problem all over the world.

[translation needed here]



2. Human trafficking is the buying and selling of people and it is big business. It is a type of slavery.

[translation needed here]



3. Slavery was made illegal hundreds of years ago, but all over the world today people are still being bought and sold.

[translation needed here]



4. But YOU ARE NOT FOR SALE.

[translation needed here]



5. People who are bought and sold by other people can be men, women and children.

[translation needed here]



6. They may be forced to work as prostitutes, domestic workers, beggars or labourers on farms, in factories and in mines.

[translation needed here]




7. They are sometimes forced into marriage or used as human organ donors.

[translation needed here]



8. Human trafficking is big business.

[translation needed here]



9. If you are trafficked, you usually don’t get paid. You are made to work long hours in poor conditions to make money for your master.

[translation needed here]




10. If you do get paid, it’s usually not enough for you to survive without your master. Your master will own and abuse you.

[translation needed here]




11. There are millions of victims of trafficking in the world today. Many of these victims are children.

[translation needed here]



12. When someone is trafficked it takes away their basic human rights, especially the right to freedom.

[translation needed here]



13. All people are created equal and all people deserve to be free.

[translation needed here]



14. Now YOU need to answer two questions. Try to answer using the arrow buttons on the controller. You can hear any question again by pressing the centre button.

[translation needed here]




15. What is human trafficking?

[translation needed here]



16. Moving to a different house,

[translation needed here]



17. Or buying and selling people?

[translation needed here]



18. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



19. Well done. Human trafficking is when people are bought and sold.

[translation needed here]


20. What are victims of human trafficking forced to do?

[translation needed here]


21. To work for little or no pay,

[translation needed here]


22. Or to do well-paid work?

[translation needed here]


23. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



24. Yes, people who are sold are often forced to work as prostitutes, domestic workers, beggars or labourers. They are usually not paid.

[translation needed here]




25. Human trafficking is the fastest-growing crime in the world. Human traffickers are criminals.

[translation needed here]


26. The criminals work on their own or in groups. They make a lot of money from their crime and they are very dangerous.

[translation needed here]




27. They can be someone you already know or they can even be from your own family.

[translation needed here]



28. Human traffickers usually target vulnerable people.

[translation needed here]



29. Children are vulnerable to traffickers because they do not have enough information to make good decisions.

[translation needed here]




30. Other vulnerable people are refugees and poor or unemployed people from the towns and rural areas.

[translation needed here]




31. Traffickers also target people who are looking for a better life.

[translation needed here]



32. We all want a better life.

[translation needed here]



33. ANYONE can be caught by human traffickers.

[translation needed here]



34. Now here are some questions for you:

[translation needed here]



35. Who could become a victim of human trafficking?

[translation needed here]



36. A poor woman from a village,

[translation needed here]



37. A young person from a town who wants a better life,

[translation needed here]



38. or both?

[translation needed here]


39. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



40. That’s correct. ANYONE can be a victim of human trafficking, because we all want a better life for ourselves and our families.

[translation needed here]




41. Why are children especially vulnerable to traffickers?

[translation needed here]



42. Because they do not have enough information to make good decisions,

[translation needed here]



43. or because they can’t run very fast?

[translation needed here]



44. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



45. That’s right. Children are especially vulnerable to traffickers because they are often not able or old enough to make good decisions.

[translation needed here]




46. Human trafficking usually starts with somebody offering you a better life – often somewhere else.

[translation needed here]



47. The traffickers may put adverts in your local newspaper or in public places.

[translation needed here]



48. Sometimes traffickers recruit their victims by force. They use abduction, kidnapping, or bribery to get their victims.

[translation needed here]



49. Traffickers will use tricks and lies to trap you.

[translation needed here]



50. Sometimes it can start if you sell yourself for sex and the trafficker can then use that to control you and profit from you.

[translation needed here]


51. For example you may be told of a “great” job opportunity in another city or country.

[translation needed here]



52. You may be told that you can earn lots of money working as a waitress, a model, or a house keeper in a hotel or in a rich person’s home.

[translation needed here]




53. Traffickers may offer to give you or your child a good education in a place far from home.

[translation needed here]



54. Traffickers use their money to impress you. They want you to think they are successful and generous.

[translation needed here]



55. Traffickers often work with another person.

[translation needed here]



56. This other person may be someone that you trust, like an aunt or uncle, a neighbour your boyfriend or a person in your community.

[translation needed here]




57. Now try to answer these questions:

[translation needed here]



58. What type of people can be traffickers?

[translation needed here]



59. A Stranger,

[translation needed here]


60. A member of your family,

[translation needed here]


61. Your boyfriend,

[translation needed here]



62. or all three?

[translation needed here]



63. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



64. That’s right. All three answers are correct. A trafficker could be a stranger or someone you know, such as your boyfriend or even someone from your own family.

[translation needed here]



65. What lies might traffickers tell you?

[translation needed here]



66. They will offer to give you a good job,

[translation needed here]



67. They will offer to give you or your child a good education,

[translation needed here]



68. or both?

[translation needed here]



69. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



70. Yes. Both answers are correct. Traffickers tell many lies to trick you. They want you to believe that they are helping you to improve your life.

[translation needed here]




71. How do traffickers find you?

[translation needed here]



72. They may use someone you know,

[translation needed here]



73. They may put an advert in the newspaper or in a public place,

[translation needed here]



74. They may approach you in a public place, such as a market or bus stop,

[translation needed here]



75. Or are all 3 answers correct?

[translation needed here]



76. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



77. Well done. Traffickers can find you in many different ways. They can use someone you know or put an advert in the newspaper. Traffickers may also approach you in a public place, such as a bus stop or market.

[translation needed here]





78. Once they have tricked you, you are taken to a place that is unfamiliar to you. Usually you will be taken to another city or country.

[translation needed here]




79. If you are taken to a foreign country, you probably won’t be able to speak the local language. This means you won’t understand what is happening to you. This makes you powerless.

[translation needed here]




80. The trafficker may offer to pay for you to travel to your new work.

[translation needed here]



81. The trafficker may also promise to pay for your accommodation once you are there. All of this is to make the offer sound very good to you.

[translation needed here]



82. But the real reason the traffickers want to pay for you is so that you owe them money and must depend on them. This gives them more control over you.

[translation needed here]



83. If the job is in another country, they may promise to arrange your passport, visa and work permit for you. They may then keep these important papers to have even more control over you.

[translation needed here]




84. Sometimes the traffickers may cause you to break the law by telling you that you don’t need a work permit when in fact you do. They do this so they can cause trouble for you if you ever try to leave them.

[translation needed here]




85. They will threaten to report you to the police, so that you may be arrested.

[translation needed here]



86. Why do traffickers pay your travel costs?

[translation needed here]



87. Because they want to share their money with you,

[translation needed here]


88. Or because they want you to owe them money so that they can control you?

[translation needed here]



89. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



90. Yes. They want you to owe them money so that they can control you.

[translation needed here]



91. Why might the trafficker want you to break the law?

[translation needed here]



92. So that they can threaten to report you to the police,

[translation needed here]



93. Or so that you are put in prison and can’t work?

[translation needed here]



94. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



95. Yes. If you break the law the trafficker can threaten to report you to the police. This gives the trafficker more control over you.

[translation needed here]




96. Remember: Traffickers can make you vulnerable by:

[translation needed here]



97. Firstly, moving you to an unfamiliar place;

[translation needed here]



98. Secondly, arranging and paying for your travel, so that you are dependent on them;

[translation needed here]



99. And thirdly, putting you on the wrong side of the law so that they can control you. This gives them more power over you.

[translation needed here]




100. When you arrive in a new place after being trafficked you will be used to make money for the criminals who took you there.

[translation needed here]




101. You may be raped, locked up or left without food and water.

[translation needed here]



102. You may be forced to use drugs or to have sex with people you have never met before.

[translation needed here]



103. You may get diseases from sex, for example HIV and AIDS.

[translation needed here]



104. If someone you know returns to your village after being trafficked they may be too ashamed to warn you about their experiences.

[translation needed here]




105. Why do people want to traffick you?

[translation needed here]



106. To make money by selling you,

[translation needed here]



107. Or to give you a holiday?

[translation needed here]



108. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



109. That’s right. It’s true. People are trafficked to make money for other people.

[translation needed here]



110. Why might traffickers force you to use drugs?

[translation needed here]



111. Because they want to turn you into a drug addict, and make you easy to control,

[translation needed here]



112. Or because they want to sell you drugs so that you are always in debt,

[translation needed here]



113. Or are both answers correct?

[translation needed here]



114. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



115. That’s correct. Drugs are addictive and when you become an addict, you are easy to control. Traffickers use drugs to control you.

[translation needed here]


116. It is easy to become a victim of human trafficking, but there are things you can do to stay safe.

[translation needed here]




117. You can think for yourself and make good decisions. You can also help protect people who can’t make good decisions, for example children, orphans and people who are poorly educated.

[translation needed here]





118. If someone makes you an offer for a better life, try to test it - even if the offer is from someone in your own family.

[translation needed here]




119. Always listen to the small voice inside you (your inner voice/your instinct/your intuition) that tells you when something isn’t right. If you feel something is wrong, do not agree to it.

[translation needed here]





120. If you think something is wrong, you can test the information that you’ve been given. You can do this by asking questions and getting more information.

[translation needed here]




121. Ask for an address and telephone number for the place where you are going so that your family can find you.

[translation needed here]




122. It is good to ask questions if people seem to be offering you help. If they are honest they will be happy to answer your questions.

[translation needed here]




123. You should be suspicious if someone will not tell you the name, address, and telephone number of your new place of work.

[translation needed here]



124. What can you do to protect yourself from being trafficked?

[translation needed here]



125. Ask lots of questions,

[translation needed here]



126. Ask for the full name address and telephone number of where you are going,

[translation needed here]



127. Or both?

[translation needed here]


128. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



129. Yes, both answers are correct. It’s good to ask questions and listen to your inner voice if you feel something is wrong. This can help to protect you from human traffickers.

[translation needed here]




130. Should you be suspicious if someone who is offering you a job does not want to answer your questions?

[translation needed here]



131. Yes,

[translation needed here]


132. Or no?

[translation needed here]


133. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



134. That’s right. If someone who is offering you a job does not want to answer your questions you should be suspicious.

[translation needed here]




135. If you are suspicious of someone who is offering you a job, what should you do?

[translation needed here]



136. Ask: “Are you lying?”

[translation needed here]



137. Or ask for the name, address and telephone number of your new place of work?

[translation needed here]



138. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]



139. Yes! If the person offering the job is honest they will be happy to answer your questions.

[translation needed here]



140. If you are offered a job in a different town or city, ask which area the job will be in and how to find the address.

[translation needed here]




141. You can ask for help from other people too. Discuss the job details with other people you trust.

[translation needed here]



142. If you go to a church or a mosque, ask them to make contact with a local church or mosque so that they can look out for you when you arrive.

[translation needed here]




143. If you decide to go with someone who offers you a job, tell someone you trust where you are going and who with.

[translation needed here]




144. If you are promised a job in a different country you should try to phone the embassy of that country to check the job information is correct.

[translation needed here]




145. If you are offered a job in a different country what can you do to check the information is correct?

[translation needed here]




146. Phone the embassy of that country,

[translation needed here]



147. Or wait until you get to the new country?

[translation needed here]



148. Press a button now.

[translation needed here]


149. Yes! If you are offered a job in a new country, try to phone the embassy of that country to check if the information is correct.

[translation needed here]




150. Remember: YOU ARE NOT FOR SALE.

[translation needed here]



151. Information is power. The more information you have, the more powerful you are.

[translation needed here]



152. If you want to stop human trafficking in your community tell other people all that you have learned today. It could save someone’s life.

[translation needed here]




153. One last thing: There is an organisation that is against human trafficking. It is the International Organisation for Migration – or the IOM – and it has offices in over 100 countries.

[translation needed here]





154. The IOM tries to stop human trafficking and rescue the victims.

[translation needed here]



155. If you are a victim of human trafficking or if you think someone you know is a victim, contact the IOM to ask for help.

[translation needed here]




156. You can also contact the IOM if you are suspicious or worried about a job you have been offered.

[translation needed here]




157. Calls to the IOM are free, anonymous and confidential.

[translation needed here]
