UN.GIFT and the Media
BBC aired the special series 'Working Lives'. 'Working Lives' investigates one of the world's fastest growing crimes - human trafficking, and reveals an alternative economy where the poorest and most vulnerable are trapped and exploited. UN.GIFT contributed to the work of the End Human Trafficking Now Campaign! in the development of 'Working Lives'.
UN.GIFT also commissioned CNN to develop short PSAs on human trafficking and the business community. The PSAs showcased interviews of leading personalities from the private and public sector discussing their involvement in finding solutions for preventing and combating human trafficking within their own area of specialization.
