28 Jun Crossing Borders: Raising Awareness of Human Trafficking
Over the past decade, human trafficking has become a growing concern in South-East Asia. It has been estimated that 200-400,000 men, women and children from the region are trafficked annually and exploited as forced or bonded labour in factories, streets and brothels. As governments in the region work to combat trafficking, individuals are too playing their part. As part of the ‘Making a Difference’ I2Hub festival, representatives from The Chain Reaction Project (TCRP) and UN Women Singapore will discuss first hand experiences on combating human trafficking.
- How can we make a difference through travelling?
- What are the experiences of those who travel for social causes?
- What is being done to prevent and combat trafficking in Singapore and the region?
