What is Child Trafficking? 


"Trafficking of children is a form of human trafficking and is defined by the United Nations as the "recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, and/or receipt" kidnapping of a child for the purpose of slavery, forced labor and exploitation."


What is SheCor Cares Doing About It?  

According to UNICEF, Child trafficking is the buying and selling of kids under the age of 18 for the purpose of exploitation, perpetrated by force, fraud or coercion. Child trafficking happens across the globe, including all 50 U.S. states.  It is a crisis plaguing almost every nation in the world, and one that has only deepened due to COVID-19. As the U.S. State Department's 2020 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report points out, the instability and lack of access to critical services caused by the pandemic have made more people vulnerable to exploitation. Traffickers have capitalized on that instability, adjusting their business models to the 'new normal.' There are also fears that COVID-19 has made the task of identifying victims of human trafficking even more difficult.  Just as the World Vison organization, SheCor Cares believes the following measures should be had to put an end to child trafficking.  

  • Implementing and enforcing laws against trafficking crimes.

  • Improving access to good-quality health, social welfare and criminal justice support services for children survivors of trafficking.

  • Working with other governments, and with businesses, to prevent, intercept and address trafficking and prosecute criminal networks which transcend national borders.

Psalm 127:3

 Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.
