We know over 200,000 young women and girls have been trafficked to work in cotton mills in Tamil Nadu, India. Recruited under false promises through a scheme called Sumangali. They are promised a lump sum payment after 3-5 years but often receive nothing. There is little or no training or health and safety equipment. Their freedom is restricted, often living in onsite hostels, and their contact with the outside world limited.
STOP THE TRAFFIK is campaigning to end trafficking through this scheme and across the whole fashion supply chain.
High street fashion retailer Gap, are one of the largest international buyers of fabric and garments from this region. Therefore, they have the opportunity and influence to help reduce the risk of trafficking on the ground. We are calling on them to be industry leaders and commit to doing this by implementing our #MakeFashionTraffikFree Protocol.

STOP THE TRAFFIK
We are STOP THE TRAFFIK, a global movement of individuals, communities and organisations fighting to prevent human trafficking around the world.
Human trafficking is when a person is bought and sold against their will and exploited for the benefit of somebody else. This is often through the use of threat, force or deception. It is the fastest growing international crime and no country is unaffected.
We campaign against trafficking in many forms and our Make Fashion Traffik Free campaign focuses on ending trafficking within the fashion industry’s supply chain.
