Every 30 seconds, someone becomes a victim of human trafficking. Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings, mainly for the purposes of forced labor and sex trafficking. As the world's fastest growing criminal industry, this modern-day slavery affects every nation across the globe. A21 exists to abolish injustice in the 21st century through a comprehensive system to prevent human trafficking and also to protect and rehabilitate victims. They opened their first shelter for survivors of human trafficking at the end of 2008 in Greece. Today, A21 has established 11 field offices, shelters, transition homes, and administrative bases in 10 countries to help rescue, prevent, and protect victims of human trafficking.
