I am Sr. Manjula Bara member of St Theresa province the congregation of the Handmaids of Mary. I have worked for 10yrs in the field of social, pastoral, education and have done masters in social work. According to the Charism of my congregation I have worked for the poor, women and children, the under-privileged and marginalized of the society especially in our tribal context of Chotanagpur (Northern Orissa) and Dalits in other parts of Odisha. And rendering service to the humanity irrespective of caste, creed, religion and gender through all possible services especially through education, and developmental activities. As days passes there is a horrible experience of changes in climate. Especially in the nature and weather. That is causing a lot of heat and global warming. It is due to the deforestation, industrialization, pollution, and not caring for the mother earth. Therefore I want to create eco-friendliness and sustain the earth from destroying its beauty and goodness to the earth and utmost reimbursement from the earth.

Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labour, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. This may encompass providing a spouse in the context of forced marriage or the extraction of organs or tissues, including for surrogacy and ova removal.Human trafficking can occur within a country or trans-nationally. Human trafficking is a crime against the person because of the violation of the victim’s rights of movement through coercion and because of their commercial exploitation.Human trafficking is the trade in people, especially women and children, and does not necessarily involve the movement of the person from one place to another.
People smuggling (also called human smuggling and migrant smuggling) is a related practice which is characterized by the consent of the person being smuggled. Smuggling situations can descend into human trafficking through coercion and exploitation. Trafficked people are held against their will through acts of coercion, and forced to work for or provide services to the trafficker or others.
According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), forced labour alone (one component of human trafficking) generates an estimated $150 billion in profits per annum as of 2014. In 2012, the ILO estimated that 21 million victims are trapped in modern-day slavery. Of these, 14.2 million (68%) were exploited for labour, 4.5 million (22%) were sexually exploited, and 2.2 million (10%) were exploited in state-imposed forced labour.The International Labour Organization has reported that child workers, minorities, and irregular migrants are at considerable risk of more extreme forms of exploitation. Statistics shows that over half of the world’s 215 million young workers are observed to be in hazardous sectors, including forced sex work and forced street begging. Ethnic minorities and highly marginalized groups of people are highly estimated to work in some of the most exploitative and damaging sectors, such as leather tanning, mining, and stone quarry work.
Human trafficking is thought to be one of the fastest-growing activities of trans-national criminal organizations
