Continuing its efforts to combat human trafficking in Uganda, the ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) partnered with the Ugandan National Council for Children (NCC) to host a June 28 workshop in Kampala.
Human trafficking in Uganda is systemic and far-reaching. Hundreds of children, primarily from the post-conflict districts in the north, have been trafficked in recent years. Adult and child victims alike are recruited, abducted or sold into situations of forced labor as either manual laborers, domestic workers, sex workers, or as street beggars whose money are extorted from them.
Human trafficking is a long-standing problem in Uganda that has affected tens of thousands of people. Trafficking victims are sold to, or abducted by, traffickers and exploited as sex workers and laborers.
