Vulnerability factors create an environment that allows sex trafficking to occur. These include poverty, corruption, poor education and poor legal status. While vulnerability factors are being addressed around the world by many people and organisations, there is minimal focus on addressing the Demand and Supply that fuels sex trafficking.
Demand for sex trafficking is driven by cultural attitudes towards women and children and unhealthy sexual relationships, pornography, prostitution and sex tourism. We believe that the local community and the local church have a responsibility and a mandate for addressing the demand factors.
Supply of women and children to be sold in the sex trafficking industry is addressed through prevention education, the rescue of the victims and the prosecution of the perpetrators responsible. Nvader’s mission and core competency is around addressing the supply factors.
