Human trafficking takes many forms, has many faces.

It has no gender, no age, no nationality.

Appearances are often deceptive, which is why we made this exhibition. We hope this will help you to take a look that goes beyond appearances on what surrounds you.

You can easily make a difference, no matter what your role is. Below are some possible actions you can take and resources to guide you.


Ask yourself: is it really necessary to share personal images? You can talk to someone you trust if you are in an uncomfortable situation.
