Human trafficking is an unfortunately growing illegal industry happening in almost every corner of the globe. It is an umbrella term that covers crimes such as forced labour, bonded labour, begging, child sexual exploitation and other illicit activities. It is a form of exploitation in which people are coerced, manipulated, and sometimes even abducted and sold into situations of abuse, including forced labour and sexual exploitation.
