There will be a forum on human trafficking on the 15th of September from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the National College of Public Administration and Governance’s audio visual room located on the second floor of the NCPAG building. The film showing and the forum will focus on human trafficking within the Philippines and ways for citizens to help in the fight against the illegal trade.
Although human trafficking is a big problem worldwide, the number of Filipinos being trafficked has grown in the past few years - trafficking of women and children being the most rampant. More often than not, trafficked human beings are traded for the purposes of sexual exploitation, reproductive slavery, and forced labor also known as modern day slavery.
An international agreement called the Trafficking Protocol was adopted by the United Nations Organization in the year 2000 to help stop human trafficking.
