Trafficking story: Sujatha

When Sujatha was in Secondary School, she received a bad grade on an exam. She was too ashamed to go home and face her parents so she went to a bus station to run away. While at the bus station she was approached by a woman who promised Sujatha a job, one that her parents would be proud of. Sujatha believed the woman and followed her, eventually into a brothel where was forced into prostitution.

Trafficking story: Michelle

Michelle grew up in the foster care system in the USA. She never felt like anyone was looking out for her. One day she met a nice guy but as she got to know him more, he became emotionally abusive. He then convinced her that the only way for them to make enough money and to build a life for themselves was for her to sell herself.

Stories like Sujatha’s and Michelle’s are not uncommon. Do you know?
