Human trafficking globally is a serious violation of human rights.
Human trafficking relates to the abuse of human dignity. As a part of organised crime, it undermines the basic principles of law and democracy within a society.
Human trafficking requires the joint effort of all institution on a regional, state and international level.
Come to a conversation with Olga, Yan, experts and supporters about the issue that threatens us every day and about opportunities to gain information and report human trafficking.
*Olga’s story is captivating. She received an offer for a very good job when she was still very young. She travels abroad and what awaits her is a fortune that changes her life: Olga has become a victim of human trafficking. Good people offer her aid in escaping her cruel fate – Yan Smith, Tsvetan Tsvetanov and Antoaneta Vassileva. They are the PEOPLE who made possible Olga’s fulfilling life.
Let us be vigilant and informed!
