Hanya’s Hope is dedicated to the fight against human trafficking, a truly global issue that has affected the lives of many, especially children. Sunday, July 30, marked the World Day against Trafficking in Persons, a day proclaimed by the United Nations (UN) at a 2013 General Assembly to “raise awareness of the situation of victims of human trafficking and for the promotion and protection of their rights,” as the resolution declares.
Every year, approximately two million children are exploited in the global commercial sex trade. What’s more, children comprise approximately one-third of all human trafficking victims globally, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Global Report on Trafficking in Persons. Moreover, 71 per cent of human trafficking victims are women and girls, according to the report.
Hanya’s Hope, a charitable foundation committed to assisting child survivors of sex trafficking and abuse worldwide, acts as an intermediary (of sorts) — as the foundation aims to put victims in contact with counselling, legal aid and accessible educational services. The foundation’s plan is to develop a large digital network that will facilitate such an initiative, so that no child — no matter where he or she is, and regardless of what type of upbringing he or she had — feels that he or she has nowhere to turn to for help. Hanya’s Hope is also committed to donating a percentage of its proceeds to its charitable partners, who work tirelessly to provide services that combat human trafficking. Hanya’s Hope also plans on hosting events (i.e., gala fundraisers) that support victims of human trafficking everywhere.
