Human Trafficking Human trafficking is one of the cross-cutting issues. It is a worldwide serious concern. Human trafficking is an illegal trade of human beings for sexual exploitation, forced labour, extraction of organs or tissues and so on. According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), human trafficking is the recruitment or transportation of persons by means of the threat or use of  force or other forms of abduction, fraud or deception, or for the purpose of  exploitation. It knows no gender, age, race and boundaries.

Victims are trafficked within a country or transnational. They are smuggled because they are forced to work as prostitutes, domestic servants, beggars,  factory workers, mine workers, circus performers and child soldiers. It is like another form of slavery. The majority of trafficking victims are women and children because of their marginalisation in many societies and their  limited economic resources. Besides them, other key target groups include people from low income households, ethnic minorities, illiterate or people with low level of education, refugees, illegal migrants, children running away from  home, and other. Members of split families are also prone to it. Women of forced  marriage and early marriage, deserted wife, widows and discriminated  daughters are easily victimised.

Traffickers prey on the most vulnerable members of society. In order to deceive, first, they take help of local people to identify such families. They may provide economic incentive and financial loans to their friends, relatives, family, spouse  or even parents. At times, most victims are lured to promises of better jobs or  well paid job in cities, false marriages and proposals, easy money, dream of  sophisticated life and other. Victims of earthquakes, foods, wars and epidemics can be easily smuggled.

Most victims are involved in slavery like practices, and kept in prison like environment. It is because they can be physically and sexually abused. They  have to work long hours without any rest or recreation. They never get medical  facility when they fall sick. They are either paid less or their earnings are with held with prolonged indebtedness to traffickers.

Our constitution has preserved the right to freedom. Therefore, we must fight  against trafficking of persons. In addition to legislation, the Nepal government,  the Ministry of Women, Children and Welfare, various INGOs and NGOs and  many other organisations in Nepal are dedicated to combat human trafficking. If we suspect anyone involving in such illegal activities, we have to report  the police or any member of concerned organisations. We can also use helpline  numbers anytime to inform about victims or traffickers. Our little effort will be a great help to control violation of human rights.
