Freedom United Instagram Live – End Orphanage Trafficking
Tune in to Freedom United’s Instagram on Wednesday January 26 at 12pm EST/5pm GMT where we’ll be going live with Go Overseas, a company helping thousands of volunteers around the world travel abroad, to discuss how organizations in the tourism sector can play a crucial role in ending orphanage trafficking.
Follow us on Instagram @freedomunitedHQ, set a reminder to tune in and send us your questions to join in this important discussion!
Orphanage trafficking is still a significant problem. But volunteer tour operators are important allies in busting the business model of orphanage trafficking. By no longer offering orphanage placements, they can remove the financial incentive that is exploited by traffickers and unscrupulous orphanage directors.
That’s why we’re looking forward to this discussion with Go Overseas to learn about their journey to implement a new system on their site to flag the harms of volunteering in orphanages, and how we can work with the tourism sector to end orphanage trafficking.
