What drives slavery and human trafficking? 

PROFIT

Human traffickers make money from exploiting other human beings. Using physical and psychological violence, traffickers force  girls and boys, women and men to do things they do not want to do…  

ALL FOR PROFIT

 Poverty, little or no formal education, war, political instability, natural disasters and an unsafe family environment may create a situation of extreme vulnerability for potential victims of human trafficking.

But do these factors cause human trafficking?  

No. Not exactly.  

Human trafficking is a business. Like any successful business, it cannot thrive without a demand for the product/service.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS A MARKET- DRIVEN BUSINESS SUSTAINED BY THE DEMAND FOR SLAVES and SLAVE MADE PRODUCTS.
