Student Art Against Human Trafficking - Pereira

In 2012, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) visited different areas of Colombia to educate children and young adults on how to recognise, report and prevent human trafficking. As part of this program, children from various schools and communities created murals to show their understanding of human trafficking and their support of modern slavery survivors. Of the 1,900 children with whom UNODC worked, the majority lived in areas where levels of prostitution and drug crimes are very high. This mural was created in Pereira, which is the capital city of the Risaralda region in the foothills of the Andes. It shows a woman on the end of puppet strings, with the phrase 'no caigas en la trampa' or 'do not fall in the trap' to the left.
