ANTI-TRAFFICKING

SEARCH PROJECTS

OUR APPROACH

Human trafficking is modern-day slavery — a system in which both children and adults are bought and sold through force, coercion, threats, deception, or abduction. Human trafficking is criminal activity that results in forced labor and sexual exploitation. It is a global problem that affects people from many backgrounds or situations. However, people from poor families are especially at risk because traffickers prey on those who are vulnerable.

 

The Church of the Nazarene has a presence in many countries where children and adults are vulnerable to trafficking. In these areas, NCM partners with local churches in anti-trafficking efforts that range from prevention and education to protection and rehabilitation. NCM’s strongest engagement with ending human trafficking is through prevention and providing economic and educational opportunities to lower the risk of poverty-induced trafficking.

As a member of the Wesleyan Holiness Consortium, the Church of the Nazarene helped to craft and has endorsed the consortium’s Declaration for Freedom, and NCM’s anti-trafficking work aligns with this declaration.
