Story

Human trafficking is a growing business worth $150 billion per year, significantly more than the annual turnover of some of the world's most profitable companies.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation is at the forefront of the fight against human trafficking, running programmes and supporting strategic initiatives to fight slavery worldwide.


Your donation will help the Thomson Reuters Foundation fund:


Anti-Slavery Investigative Journalism

From the plight of the Rohingya in Myanmar – smuggled into Thailand to be sold as slaves on fishing boats  to the first-hand accounts of human trafficking survivors in Pakistan and Qatar, our journalists report on slavery globally.

 

Help us expand our human trafficking and slavery coverage.

 

Anti-Slavery Journalism Training

The Thomson Reuters Foundation runs training courses for journalists from around the world wanting to report on slavery and human trafficking. Participants learn what coverage of slavery and trafficking involve, from crime and politics to corruption in business.

 

Help us give them the tools to produce high-impact stories for widespread dissemination.

 

An international forum to identify effective solutions to fight slavery

Though Trust Women we find concrete solutions to fight slavery and to empower women worldwide. Each year, we bring together some 500 delegates across top anti-slavery NGOs, business leaders, lawyers and government representatives to connect, brainstorm and commit to take action together and forge tangible commitments to fight slavery. 

 

Help us bring together the leaders in the fight against slavery, and to identify concrete steps to stop human trafficking.

 

Free legal assistance to anti-slavery NGOs

Through TrustLaw, we facilitate ground-breaking legal research on slavery, like the report the Visayan Forum used to successfully negotiate for landmark legislation in the Philippines, the “Magna Carta for Domestic Workers”, passed in February 2013.

 

Help us spread the power of pro bono worldwide to help anti-slavery organizations achieve their mission.

 

Strategic partnerships for high-impact solutions

We lead strategic initiatives to tackle human trafficking through innovative high impact solutions. In India, we partnered with the Freedom Fund to map and assess the options available to fight human trafficking and slavery through the rule of law.

 

Help us start more of these initiatives where they are needed most.


Together, we can stop human trafficking and confine slavery to the history books.  Choose to see.
