The Year in Review. Fighting Child Marriage and Human Trafficking: Accomplishments and Impact

Let’s look at the facts! Human exploitation and trafficking is the fastest growing criminal enterprise globally at $150 billion global business – worth more than the profits of Apple, Amazon, Chase, Microsoft, and Wal-Mart – combined.

Orange County is a hotspot for human trafficking. Over 80% of human trafficking victims are shipped to Orange County due to the rich and wealthy population, yielding in a higher profit.

As another year comes to a close, Global Hope 365 would like to thank their supporters, donors, and advocates for their incredibly generous support of Global Hope 365’s work that has allowed the organization in the last 4 years to continue to raise awareness, educate, and empower to prevent future victims of child marriage, human trafficking and other forms of gender-based violence.
