Our Priority Areas
We promote and implement projects throughout Peru and to fight against human exploitation, encouraging the development of people, organizations and society. These are our priority areas:
The recruitment, transportation, transfer and harbouring of a person against their will in order to exploit them undermines their fundamental rights as a human being. Our commitment is to fight against this crime.
The use of children and adolescents, both boys and girls, in sexual or erotic acts in exchange for money, gifts, food or other supposed benefits is a violation of human rights that affects the victims’ physical, social and emotional development.
Any work or service that is required of a person under the threat of any punishment and for which the individual has not agreed to do, violates their right to freedom.
