Children in Mexico Affected by Human Trafficking
Project Founder: Dr. Mimi Choon-Quinones Project Leader: Martha Forcucci
- Problem Statement
- There are an estimated 16,000 to 20,000 Mexican and Central American children who are trafficked for sex in Mexico.
- Raise Public Awareness on Human trafficking known as trade of humans, most commonly for the purpose of sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation. Groups considered most vulnerable to human trafficking in Mexico include women, children, indigenous persons, and undocumented migrants.
- Bring human dignity back to the most vulnerable to human trafficking in Mexico including women, children, indigenous persons, and undocumented migrants.
- In an effort to address this problem, provide a series of workshops and trainings to prevent human trafficking by partnering with the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime (or Palermo Convention)
