Slavery is not a thing of the past. Human trafficking is modern-day slavery. According to UNICEF over one million children are trafficked annually worldwide. This means that every 26 seconds another child is forced to become a sex worker or someone’s labor slave. Other human tragedies may be unavoidable, but no child should have to face this nightmare.
At Million Kids, we believe if the bad guys are harming this many children a year, then the good guys must help even more. And with the efforts of our partners and your support, we can
Million Kids distributes designated funds to recognized agencies and activists working to prevent and eradicate human trafficking. Million Kids is a single-issue nonprofit committed to ending the human trafficking and sexual exploitation of children.
An independent review panel of anti-trafficking and child welfare professionals considers projects submitted by our partners and recommends which ones to fund. Qualified organizations and professionals then implement approved projects. This means that more children lost to trafficking will be rescued and rehabilitated. And solid prevention programs will keep vulnerable children from being victimized.
Human Trafficking is the fastest growing illegal business in the world. Children are the commodity. This must be stopped.
