The fight against modern slavery is useless unless we attack it at its roots–we must stop human trafficking before it happens. By empowering people to protect themselves, we can prevent them from ever falling victim to the modern slave trade.
First, we must ask the right questions. Why are people being enslaved? Why are they vulnerable? From there, we can work to create entire communities that stand against exploitation–communities in which people will never be trafficked, nor will they become traffickers.
A focus on prevention means a focus on stopping the cycle of exploitation and slavery. If one person is educated and empowered, they can help others do the same. And, if we’re able to prevent one person from ever being enslaved, well, we’d call that quite a victory.
