Actress Stephanie Linus Partners UN Women To Release A Public Service Announcement Against Trafficking Of Women And Girls

The trafficking of people for s#x and labour is a global issue fueled by desperation, conflict, inequality, and greed. Staying informed and educated about this heart wrenching crime is one important way to get ahead of the curve and avoid becoming a victim. 

Films are effective and engaging tools for sensitization and education on human trafficking and related issues, and Stephanie Linus has stepped in to contribute to the efforts against human trafficking of women and girls with a compelling Public Service Announcement (PSA) on human trafficking titled “You Wan Travel Abroad?”.

As an advocate against human trafficking, Mrs. Linus partnered with the UN Women, under the project on Preventing Forced Migration and Trafficking in Women and Girls in Nigeria, funded by the Italian Government, to produce a short film that spotlights the dangers of human trafficking of women and girls for sex and forced labor. Using a unique theatric style, the human rights advocate walks through different scenes where actors are portraying the steps used to lure victims and the consequences of their actions.

According to the United Nations, 50 per cent of detected victims were trafficked for sexual exploitation, 38 per cent were exploited for forced labour. Female victims continue to be the primary targets, with women making up 46% and girls 19% of all victims of trafficking. UNODC 2019 report shows that women and girls together account for 72 per cent of all human trafficking victims detected globally, with girls representing more than three out of every four child trafficking victims.

According to NAPTIP, 60-80% of the victims of Europe sex trade are Nigerians. NAPTIP further contends that 75% of those who are trafficked within Nigeria are trafficked across states, while 23% are trafficked within states.

In this short film, Mrs. Linus is the voice of reasoning, urging the actors, and the viewers to make better choices for themselves and avoid the deceit of human traffickers. Watch short film HERE

The PSA short film is a sensitization tool that can be used by government and civil society organisation in the fight against trafficking of women and girls.


  1. Kudos mama, keep on doing what you do .when we keep speaking up ,the world will eventually hear

  2. As long as the norms of Nigerian land still eulogize "abroad" as heaven, it will be so difficult to deter Nigerian girls from falling into the traps.
    Go to the countryside this Christmas season and see what is happening.
    The ladies are already moving village-wards and frantically searching for anyone that knows the way to "abroad"

  3. Same women are the one's responsible for child's trafficking...
    It's better for every community to sensitize their community than putting up this one.

  4. Beautiful woman, you are doing well.

  5. Awww πŸ‘πŸ‘great awareness
