France will host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, events which are the standard bearers of the traditional values of friendship, respect, excellence, determination, inspiration, courage and equality. The "Ensemble contre la traite des êtres humains" collective (Together against trafficking in human beings") is launching its awareness-raising campaign to recall that this major sporting event must be a celebration for each and every one of us.
Circulating posters to raise the awareness of public attending events at the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games
According to one survey carried out in 2022 by 69 associations interviewing 2,675 victims supported by them in France, 76% had experienced sexual exploitation, 15% had experienced exploitation in the workplace, 7% had been coerced into committing crimes and 2% had been forced into begging. This figure hides an even darker reality. The actual number of victims, women and men, children and adults, often difficult to identify, is in fact much higher.
Through its campaign, the "Ensemble contre la traite des être humains" Collective is raising awareness of forms of exploitation and offering keys to understanding the phenomenon and suggesting ways to take action.
Sharing the life stories of victims of trafficking and exploitation
These men, women and children all have something in common: they were conned and placed their trust in the wrong person, in the hope of a better life. Here are their stories.
