Child trafficking, when not only the child is stolen, but also the dreams and the aspirations. It is not mere transportation of people, but exploitation. It is a deep well, in which the person is pushed, unknowingly by his/her near and dear ones, not realising the dire risk. Childhood is life's most beautiful season and these kids, who get trafficked, out of no knowledge, have to deal with the adult-imposed victimization.
It is high time we start valuing the importance of childhood in the life of each human being. It is the phase that shapes an adult when grown up. A disturbed childhood simply cuts through the fabric of confidence of the human. So, it is our responsibility that we make this world a better stay for the younger beings.
Then there are these startling statistics, which have been brought out by the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation,
- Every hour 2 children are sexually abused in India.
- In 2015, there were 3,490 cases of child trafficking but only 55 convictions and
- Between 2014 and 2016, 23,699 children were liberated from trafficking.
With these startling and disturbing numbers in mind, let us all pledge to work towards eliminating child trafficking from its roots.
Let us all be #Untrafficked and let #KidsTakeOver!
