Trafficking of humans is considered one of the fastest growing criminal activities in the world today. Too often we have the mindset that this issue will only ever occur "somewhere else," when in fact it is happening right here at home. Because much of these events goes unreported, statistics are hard to collect. Some NGO's, based on reported incidents, estimate that 10,000 Canadians are trafficked domestically each year.
The best measures of protection and defence against these atrocities, are locally driven efforts beginning in homes, schools, and communities. These efforts have taken the form of Daughter Project Clubs, to foster our first initiative, prevention. These girls empowerment clubs focus on raising awareness and building self-worth, with the end goal of helping each girl to reach her full potential.
