The Blue Heart Campaign raises awareness around the globe of human trafficking and its impact on people and society.
The Blue Heart Campaign encourages involvement from governments, civil society, the corporate sector and individuals alike to inspire action and help prevent human trafficking.
The Blue Heart Campaign is raising awareness of human trafficking also through the stories of the victims and thus trying to prevent further cases and raise funds for victims.
All proceeds of the Blue Heart Campaign go to the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children. The Trust Fund provides vital assistance and protection to the victims of trafficking through a network of specialized organizations across the globe.
Human Trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of people through force, fraud or deception for exploitation. In every region of the world, traffickers exploit vulnerable women, girls, men, and boys of all backgrounds for profit.
Even without knowing, we might have come across its victims.
Traffickers often use violence, blackmail, emotional manipulation, removal of official documents, fraudulent employment agencies, and fake promises of education and job opportunities to trick and coerce their victims.
