Indonesia is a source, transit and destination country for human trafficking. Human trafficking occurs both internally between all 34 provinces, as well as internationally to other South East Asian countries and beyond — affecting men, women and children.
It is estimated that 1,220,000 people are enslaved in Indonesia, which is 4.7% of the population, while 50% of the population are vulnerable to being trafficked (Global Slavery Index). The forms of human trafficking found in Indonesia include sex trafficking, labor trafficking, child trafficking, domestic servitude, and more. Indonesia is a major source country of migrant labor, primarily employed in low wage sectors and has more than 17,000 islands leading to multiple ports for international transit (International Organization for Migration Indonesia).
Awareness and education to the dangers of this crime throughout all spheres of society are critical to seeing trafficking come to an end in Indonesia.
what we do
Unbound Indonesia is based in the capital city of Jakarta and offers anti-human trafficking presentations to groups and organizations around the city and country. We offer a variety of presentations depending upon the audience that focus on bringing awareness and education to human trafficking. These presentations equip participants on the dangers of trafficking, how to spot it, and how to respond, no matter your age or sphere of society. We also partner with other local organizations in the country so that we can all be unified in our efforts to see human trafficking end in Indonesia.
