Student Art Against Human Trafficking - Barranquilla
Students with United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, 2012
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 programme, 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 leveles of prostitution and drug crimes are very high. This mural was created in Barranquilla, which is the largest city and port in northern Colombia, and is the country's fourth most populous city after Bogotá, Medellín and Cali.
