Re: “Strings attached

It is somewhat shocking to learn that Human Trafficking is a $32 billion industry. From the Thai girls who are sold by their parents to Bangkok brothels to the Eastern European women who are deceived by phony offers of hotel jobs in the USA, to the Mexican boy who was promised a job at a good wage, but finds himself forced to work in the fields or to run drugs in order to "pay back" his trafficker. The fundamental problem in these cases is the poverty that drives people into the hands of traffickers. Educating parents who otherwise will unwittingly agree to send away their children could be a critical element in the solution to at least a part of this problem. But how does one convince a family trapped in grinding poverty that that they are being deceived?
