Anti Human Trafficking Efforts: Using
Internet and Social Media!
"Slavery was, in a very real sense, the first international human rights issue to
come to the fore. It led to the adoption of the first human rights laws and to the
creation of the first human rights non-governmental organization. And yet despite
the efforts of the international community to combat this abhorrent practice, it is
still widely prevalent in all its insidious forms, old and new". (Kofi Annan- Former
Secretary-General of UN)

Since I have volunteered myself as anti human trafficking activist, I was constantly
looking for a solution which can not only strengthen the anti human trafficking
efforts made around the world but can create a wave of social change as well.
Going through lots of information on the internet and on social media, I found
that digital technology is the only way to reach masses affected by human
trafficking aka modern slavery each year.
Through my research, I realized that we need a real place where we can find all
the information about human traffickers and we can raise the voice to end that
brutal issue that has became a No. 1 crime around the globe.
Anti human trafficking policy measures have evolved internationally since 100
years ago. Since 1904, the international community has been working to assemble
the pieces of the human trafficking puzzle. While governments, international
organizations, and nongovernmental organizations have recognized the
importance of collaboration and have established some co-ordination
mechanisms and practices, they haven't been able to overcome challenges.
Despite great improvements to international governmental and non-
governmental efforts, they are not always reaching the people who need help,
who are mostly deprived poor people. There are still millions who don't even
know what the indication signs of human trafficking are, what the forms of
human trafficking are, and how much their region is affected by the problem.
They don't even know which global organizations are running anti human
trafficking campaigns.

How Internet and Social Media Can Help in Anti Human Trafficking Programs:
The world has seen the greatest technological revolution of all time in the past 20
years. It started with the introduction of artificial intelligence followed by the rise
of internet, which has worked wonders for the global information transfer
regime. And then there came the era of emotional intelligence when social
networks became a vital part of the lives of most human beings in civilized
There are now more than 800 million people from around the world who are
using social networks to interact with each other. What is personally most
inspiring to me is the relative absence of racial, ethnic, and religious
discrimination in this great melting pot of a universal nation that is the online
Imagine how powerful it would be for the anti human trafficking cause if this
enormous body of people could be inspired to unite together and lend their
support! Already, thousands of anti human trafficking experts use social
networks, and they would add their strength to our efforts to educate the larger
body of people!
Concluding Anti Human Trafficking Issue in Personal Assumptions:
If we harness the rapidly growing power of digital technology, our anti human
trafficking programs will have a greatly increased hope of shaping a better world
for the next generation. We have the opportunity to save victims from the
merciless brutality of the oppressive modern slaver. We must first find the
optimum digital platform to use for the launch of our anti human trafficking
campaign, where we are able to provide information on a wide scale about
known human traffickers, affected regions, and organizations that will help
human trafficking victims.
The most current examples that we see are CNN Freedom Project, Not For Sale
, International Justice Mission, The BBC World Service Trust, Action
and Aide et Action. These have been granted by Internet and Social Media
Giant Google Inc., which will work in coalition to facilitate governments to stop
slave labor by identifying ring masters, documenting abuse, and freeing
individuals. They will be providing refuge to victims with recovery programs and
job training to empower them for their new lives.

Google Inc. also showed trust in Anti Human Trafficking tool portals like powerful
Slavery Footprint Calculator and Polaris Project's National Trafficking hotline.
FreedomNow is also formed for the same purpose, but it's pretty unique as it is
providing a mix of general education, resources to empower victims everywhere,
and an extensive database of known traffickers and their agents around the
These examples show us that together we can make a difference by building a
safer, freer, and more prosperous world for all. Let's start a digital revolution for
anti human trafficking now!

trafficking programs around the globe. He has joined FreedomNow - A
