Human trafficking is a global menace, one of the world's most lucrative and deadly crimes. Where states fail to adequately police and prosecute this crime, NGOs step in. The Good Shepherd Sisters have a central mission to eradicate human trafficking and to lobby and advocate for stronger protections of those who fall prey to this global crime and for tougher sentences to those who run them.
