Human trafficking is the term that is used today for modern-day slavery. Like African slaves in past centuries, many people from around the world are being held captive and forced to work. Some people are physically beaten to make them work. A few others are sold into slavery. Some are kidnapped. But most people are tricked into becoming a slave. They are given false promises of money, new jobs, educations, and better lives. Then the promises are broken. The victims of human trafficking are trapped. Human trafficking is taking place in almost every country of the world. In fact, there is a good chance that modern-day slaves live not too far from where you live. According to a 2008 report from the U.S. State Department, human trafficking is one of the greatest human rights challenges of this century, both here and abroad.
