Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings. Every 30 seconds, someone becomes a victim of modern day slavery through the form of sex trafficking, forced labor, illegal trade of human organs, even child soldiers. Currently there are 27 million people trapped in slavery, sadly only 1-2% ever make it out. This happens everywhere, even in the United States.
A21 exists to abolish the injustice of human trafficking through a comprehensive approach, which includes working alongside law enforcement to reach, rescue, shelter, and restore victims of the sex trafficking industry, as well as in the are of prevention and raising awareness across the globe. The A21 Crisis shelter, project center, and restoration program are located in Greece, which has been labeled the "center of human trafficking." A21 also works on the ground in Ukraine and Bulgaria, which is a country of origin for victims of human trafficking. In Ukraine and Bulgaria, we actively work in the area of prevention in schools and awareness programs, as well as manage our restoration homes. In recent years, A21's work in aftercare has extended to South Africa, Thailand, USA, and the UK.
