UNVTF MESSAGE TO PRIVATE SECTOR

All forms of trafficking in persons constitute serious violations of the human rights of victims, and trafficking in persons for the purpose of sexual exploitation is one of the worst forms of gender based violence.  Less than 1% of all the victims of trafficking in the world are actually properly identified so you can appreciate that the hidden numbers are immense.

The UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Trafficking in Persons (UNVTF) was established by the UN General Assembly a little over a decade ago with the sole purpose of directly reaching and assisting as many trafficking in persons victims wherever they are through local NGOs with less bureaucratic hurdles. UNVTF currently facilitates small grants with a victims-centred approach reaching over 5,000 victims a year through a total of more than 130 projects implemented by our civil society partners on the front line.

You are invited to watch the video, hear the testimonials from survivors, and know more on the impact of UNVTF-funded projects around the globe.

UNVTF would like to reach more victims and the support from the private sector is the game changer.  UNVTF would like to encourage your company to include supporting victims of human trafficking in your CSR framework and workplace fundraising matching employee fundraising.   UNVTF would be glad to share your examples of support to victims of trafficking in persons and build on your efforts to encourage more companies and employees to be active victims supporters and advocates.
