4. Human Trafficking Campaign
Emile SAFARI: Head of Programs at Delight Rwanda
Human Trafficking is the trading of people for the purpose of exploitation.
Explaining the human trafficking forms and faces to the students of Liquid Net Family School (Agahozo Shalom Youth Village) located in Rwamagana District the Head of Programs and expert in international relations and conflict management and Humana Trafficking prevention management Emile Safari said that youths are more vulnerable than the adult people.
He said the Human trafficking takes place in three major stages; recruitment, transfer and exploitation under a chain of interlinked agents using means of threatening or using force, Coercion, Abduction, Deception and Fraud. Exploitation includes sexual exploitation, forced labour, early marriage, street begging removal of organs and using one in illegal activities.
Despite the tremendous work by so many in the sector, global estimates on human trafficking show the crime increasing not decreasing. “From 2008 we have been creating a world where people aren’t bought and sold. As important as it is to rescue victims and prosecute traffickers, we will never put an end to human trafficking if that’s all we do. We need to prevent” Emile Safari said.
The main objective of the campaign is to understand the challenges faced by the youths pay much efforts to prevent and control the incidence of trafficking in the country. Delight Rwanda is campaigning in secondary schools by 2019- 2020 academic year where students get information about traffickers and their tricks they use to recruit them such as jobs and scholarship funding.
