Judy Boyle was somebody I had never met before, neither had I heard of THE NO project.
In general, people still know little about the extent of human trafficking and modern-day slavery and all credit to Burcu Akyol for including this in the ISTEK programme. Human trafficking is a crime of unbelievable cruelty, one of the fastest growing crimes on the planet and one which generates massive profits for traffickers through the torture, dehumanizing and forced exploitation of other human beings.
The NO Project is an independent anti-human trafficking public awareness initiative thatfocuses on the role of increasing demand for labour and sex trafficking victims and it also targets youth awareness through music, the arts, education and social media as Judy mentions in the video.
Judy’s workshop was received very well and has led to more initiatives as you will hear in the video. The conference was enriched by Judy’s presence and I hope that this video will contribute more to what it is a horrendous activity and one which we should strive to eradicate from our planet on all fronts. Thanks Judy for your contribution.
