Human Trafficking

It is estimated that almost 1 million girls are coerced into prostitution each year. Many governments and law enforcement agencies label and treat trafficked adolescent girls as prostitutes instead of the trafficked children that they are. Almost 3 million girls are modern day slaves in the sex industry, actually being owned by someone else. In addition there are millions of girls trafficked and sold as domestic servants worldwide.
