We work to prevent the exploitation of children and young people,
protect the most vulnerable and bring healing to those who have been exploited.
- Ukraine and Moldova are two of the top “source” countries of human trafficking in the world (United Nations).
- An estimated 500,000 have fallen victim to this crime since the fall of communism.
- Many are victims of prostitution or pornography, others fall prey to labor exploitation in service, construction, or agricultural areas.
- 90% of all child pornography available globally, originates in Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus.
Partnering with the most successful, Indigenous agencies, ministries, and leaders focused on trafficking prevention, awareness programs, and victim rehabilitation in their own countries is the solution.
Our strategy is to equip and empower them not only to expand their work but also to galvanize more people in their own country to join the fight against slavery.
Here is how HART and our National partners are fighting human trafficking through education and awareness programs for young people.
HART is privileged to be partnered with Beginning of Life, one of the most respected and effective Anti-Human Trafficking agencies in Eastern Europe. They are located in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova.
