ZOE protects the identity and dignity of children and does not show trafficked children.
HELP END CHILD TRAFFICKING
Human trafficking is modern day slavery. It is the recruitment & use of human beings bodies or services. Victims are often abducted, forced, coerced, or deceived for the purpose of prostitution, other sexual exploitation, organ harvesting, labour or servitude.
One way you can practically stand up for the rights of children is learning about the problem so that you are equipped with the knowledge to fight. Learn more about child trafficking by visiting the pages below.
WHAT IS HUMAN TRAFFICKING?
Human trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring, or receipt of persons by means of coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation.
The Australian Curriculum gives teachers the opportunity to explore some of the big issues facing the globe today. These free resources were developed to support the current Australian Curriculum with downloadable versions available to comply with the Australian and New South Wales Curriculum Standards. The curriculum was written by Mark Easton who has written, co-written or contributed to more than forty textbooks for students and guides to support teachers in their use of these resources in the classroom.
HOW ZOE PROTECTS
With every action we take at ZOE, we always put the children first. From creating a safe and nurturing environment for child trafficking survivors to employing a strict Child Protection Policy, we always make sure the child is protected from all forms of abuse. Our Child Protection Policy covers standards of conduct, recruitment, and screening of staff. We also have a Media Protection Policy that describes the use of non-identifiable images and publicity protocols.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING RESOURCES
Spreading child trafficking awareness is one way we combat the trafficking of children. We believe the more people know the realities and prevalence of child trafficking, the more likely they’ll take action to end it. In our Awareness Campaigns, we visit communities in Southeast Asia, U.S., and Australia. These people are provided educational packets, so they can help spread human trafficking awareness among their peers. We also have an extensive network of local law enforcement officials, teachers, and pastors in these areas who help us identify and rescue victims of child trafficking.
