Together Against Trafficking (TAT)

Together Against Trafficking has been founded by students at the University of Cambridge to raise awareness on sex trafficking through participative events and to raise funds for victims in India.

We hope to raise awareness through interactive events so as to make the experience more memorable, therefore more effectively spreading our message. It is not one purely of depicting the brutality of this human trade, but also of conveying the hope that the rescued girls have in a better future, by being exposed to new opportunities. We are partnered with Be Aware Now, who similarly use interactive art performances to raise awareness amongst the youth.

The funds raised from our interactive events will go directly to the girls themselves, who are in centers run by one of our partner organizations (Rescue Foundation) in Mumbai, Pune, Boisar and Delhi (India). We will also be selling hand-made products by these talented girls (a website selling these products will be created shortly).

Our ultimate aim is to create a worldwide student network in support of the fight against sex trafficking. So please support our awareness campaign by sharing our page and coming to our events! With united hands, we can get that one step closer to equality!
