Many people do not think about human trafficking in their daily lives. But, this is a major issue that happens across the world to millions of people each year. Over 20 million people are currently victims of forced labor and nearly 2 million of them are children. Trafficking is the second highest source of illegal income in the world. Yet, only about 1-2% of human traffickers are brought to justice each year and less than 10% of victims are freed. And every 30 seconds, another victim falls into world of human trafficking.
