PASSPORT to a NEW LIFE - A Spiritually Based Program -
We are Abolitionist! Global Projects has been involved with combating human trafficking since 2005 when we launched Passport to a New Life as an advocacy and human services program. We know first-hand the devastation of this lifestyle of prostitution and bondage. The organization, GPH3, has been on the international front working and educating the public of this modernday slavery of children and women. Our founder, Dr. Sabrina Black has taken teams on the field to Nigeria, England, Spain, Italy, Haiti, and Bulgaria to help build bridges with NGO’s, churches, schools, and the private sector to get involved in helping those caught in this horrific crime against humanity. The plight of those who have been taken, trapped, transported and turned-out has also impacted the metro Detroit area and Global Projects is an advocate and a voice for change. We provide counseling, crisis intervention, trauma training, life skills and self efficacy to help those who are rescued become restored. Passport to a New Life is a spiritually based program designed to touch and transform the lives of those who need a renewed sense of self and identity.
FACTS ABOUT HUMAN TRAFFICKING 1. The average cost of a slave around the world is $90. 2. Trafficking primarily involves exploitation which comes in many forms, including:
Forcing victims into prostitution Subjecting victims to slavery or involuntary servitude Compelling victims to commit sex acts for the purpose of creating pornography Misleading victims into debt bondage
3. According to some estimates, approximately 80% of trafficking involves sexual exploitation, and 19% involves labor exploitation. 4. It is estimated that there are approximately 27 million slaves around the world. 5. Around half of trafficking victims in the world are under the age of 18. 6. More than 2/3 of sex trafficked children suffer additional abuse at the hands of their traffickers.
7. Trafficked children are significantly more likely to develop mental health problems, abuse substances, engage in prostitution as adults, and either commit or be victimized by violent crimes later in life. 8. Women who have been trafficked for the purpose of sexual exploitation experience a significantly higher rate of HIV and other STDs, tuberculosis, and permanent damage to their reproductive systems. 9. There is only one shelter in the U.S. designed specifically to meet the needs of trafficking victims, and it currently only houses a total of seven to nine victims. 10. Trafficking victims normally don't get help because they think that they or their families will be hurt by their traffickers, or that they will be deported.
