STOP THE TRAFFIK educates students on modern slavery

Representatives from STOP THE TRAFFIK, a global organisation which aims to bring an end to human trafficking and modern slavery worldwide, visited Peter Symonds College to deliver a talk to students.

STOP THE TRAFFIK aims to create awareness and understanding of people trafficking, works with communities to prevent trafficking and fundraises to finance anti-trafficking work around the world.

The talk focused identifying the signs of trafficking and steps students could take to help combat it, including reporting suspected cases and putting pressure on banks and businesses to identify and prevent modern slavery throughout their supply chains.

Amy Buchan-Symons from STOP THE TRAFFIK said “It is important to empower students to understand that they can do something to help, and to educate them in the many ways that they can contribute to the work STOP THE TRAFFIK do to bring an end to human trafficking and modern slavery.”
