Chocolate Campaign

In 2007 we started campaigning with the biggest chocolate companies in the world for them to set deadlines to abolish human trafficking. Today they all have significant programs and targets which we continue to monitor and engage with them on their progress.

Modern Slavery Act

In 2011 we launched a report asking the Australian government to introduce legislation which required companies to report on what they were doing to end human trafficking in their supply chains. Since then we have sent thousands of postcards to successive Attorneys General asking for action. In 2017 the Government announced an Inquiry into whether Australia should have a 'Modern Slavery Act' requiring such reporting. STOP THE TRAFFIK prepared a submission which 18 organisations co-signed.

Tea Gardens of Assam

In 2014 we helped bring to the world's attention the situation in the tea gardens in Assam. Here human trafficking thrives in a context where tea gardens workers are trapped in a context of poverty. Tens of thousands have been trafficked. We are working with Tata Global Beverages on changing these conditions and education programs in the tea gardens leading to some gardens having now eradicated trafficking.

Spinning Mills in India

In 2014, we launched the documentary 'Sumangali: The Untold Story'. It details the experiences of young women in the spinning weaving and dying mills of India, the epicentre of production for the world's cotton knit fabrics.

Cotton from Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan is one of the only countries in the world where the dictators use their citizens as a labour force for the purposes of their personal profits. They are also the third largest cotton producing country in the world. In 2015, we achieved all companies in the ASX200 who used or sold cotton having signed a pledge to not knowingly source cotton from Uzbekistan.

Fashion Forum

In 2015, we began the first Australian Fashion Forum which brought together fashion labels and retailers in the apparel sector with NGOs to engage on how together we can end the labour abuses in their supply chains. The fourth forum is about to be held. In response has led to industry forming their own working groups to collaborate issues like ensuring a living wage.

Fishing Industry in South East Asia

In 2016 we launched an awareness campaign on human trafficking and slavery in the fishing industry in south east Asia. Our social media campaign leading to Christmas, engaged over 10,000 people.

India Experience

We have taken nearly 100 people to India to learn about trafficking prevention. In one trip we experienced first-hand the of a young woman and mother who was trafficked into a brothel in Mumbai. She had learnt mendhi (henna painting) as an alternative income source. She painted the hands and feet of people in our group. People gave extra funds which enabled her to clear her debt-bond and to get home to her husband and son.
