Human trafficking is a global, cross-border crisis in which criminals exploit the circumstances of vulnerable people to achieve financial benefits, cast them into death and an unknown fate, or exploit them in forced labor. Protecting oneself from falling victim to this crime requires awareness and proactive steps. This article outlines essential steps to help individuals avoid becoming victims of human trafficking.

  • Stay Informed:

It is important to educate yourself about the tactics and strategies employed by traffickers.

  • Be careful of Job Offers or Opportunities That Seem Too Good to Be True:

Caution is key when presented with job offers, especially those promising high wages with minimal qualifications.

  • Guard Your Personal Information:

Do not share personal information online, including social media because you will put yourself at risk to sensitive details to strangers or unverified contacts may use against you.

  • Stay Connected:

Keep your family and trusted friends connected to you. Always share your plans and whereabouts with someone you trust when meeting new people or exploring unfamiliar places.

  • Trust Your Instincts:

 Listen to your instincts and intuition because when you do not feel comfortable about something it may go wrong.

  • Access Support Services:

Familiarize yourself with local and international support services for trafficking victims. Save emergency contact numbers and seek help if you believe you are in a trafficking situation.

Remember, vigilance, education, and community engagement are powerful tools to avoid being a victim of human trafficking.

Do not fall under any false temptations, because simply communicating with them may expose you to their detention and force you to fall under their control.

Be careful, never communicate with them!
