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 155 projects implemented by our civil society partners on the front line.
