Human Trafficking is a problem 365 days of the year. Millions of men, women and children are victims of human trafficking for sexual, forced labour and other forms of exploitation worldwide. According to the UN Global Report on Trafficking in Persons, 79% of the many millions of victims of human trafficking are women, with forced prostitution the second most common form of exploitation (after forced labour).
The human and economic costs of this take an immense toll on individuals and communities. Some causes of human trafficking are poverty, ignorance, unemployment in the country, and desperation.
This project seeks donors to work on poverty reduction, offer social services, skills acquisitions, and create public awareness against desperate emigration. The City of Light was founded in 2009 and is registered in Austria and Nigeria as a non-governmental organization. It is a service learning framework for enhancing community development.
