HUMAN TRAFFICKING

TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS (TIP)

 

WHO

Every year up to four million men, women, and children are trafficked around the world. Some 80% will end up as sex slaves in the clutches of flesh traders, while the rest will be put to work as forced laborers, toiling under the most squalid conditions for little or no money.

THE COST

On a global level, trafficking in persons accounts for some US$32 billion dollars per year. On a personal level, the damage that it inflicts on individuals (traumatized by such demeaning forms of abuse) and families (torn asunder by losing loved ones) is incalculable.

OUR PARTNERS

To help fight this evil trade in Asia, Freeland joined forces with a community of counter-trafficking organizations to form the Liberty Alliance. The alliance's work is threefold:

  1. investigating and stopping human trafficking crimes

  2. providing relief and emergency services to victims

  3. preventing trafficking through outreach programs.

 

OUR PROJECTS

Also in the works are projects to help the most vulnerable of all those exploited: children and infants. The Children's Advocacy Center in Thailand will be designed to provide a safe haven for abused kids that will also double as a clinic to give the injured the proper medical treatment they require. Plans are also afoot to open a home for rescued and abandoned babies.

TRANSFORMATION

Using IBM® i2® intelligence analysis software, Freeland analysts turn raw data into powerful visualizations that reveal trafficking networks and provide critical leads to help enforcers save lives.
