Stop Them From Scoring | NFS SA’s Red Card Campaign

As thousands of visitors arrive for the World Cup from across the globe, South Africa has gone crazy with “football fever.” With national flags fluttering from vehicles, and T-Shirts promoting favoured teams, the anticipation and excitement is almost tangible. But sadly there is another side to the coin, there is an underworld of human trafficking that has been increasing dramatically over the World Cup time. No team ever wants to receive the ultimate recognition of a sporting transgression. The red card. One player lets down the team and the crowd cringes at the thought of what will happen as the play continues.

In presenting the report, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton indicated why its important that the United States rank itself on its efforts to confront trafficking. “For the first time ever we are also reporting on the United States of America because we believe its important to keep the spotlight on ourselves.” One of the emerging trends worldwide, highlighted by the 2010 TIP report is the increase in the trafficking of women and girls worldwide.

NFS Takes Action in Africa

In war-torn Uganda, one of the most devastating forms of modern-day slavery has been the practice of child-soldiering. Young children, snatched from their homes, forced into devastating acts of unspeakable violence. Today we come together to support the recovery of Uganda and its people, and to prevent future generations from being forced into modern-day slavery. Not For Sale has partnered with the Jesuit community in Gulu to bring recovery for former child soldiers, promote peace throughout the region, and enhance stability by educating a new generation of justice seeking Ugandans. With your support, we will build an Amphitheater and Peace Garden for former child soldiers and the Gulu community, using music and performance to promote peace and teach reconciliation throughout Uganda. We will provide education by building a high school classroom and girl’s dormitory, thereby preventing ongoing vulnerability and creating opportunity for this rising generation.
