Needs Statement

Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery that is connected to many other forms of exploitation, including forced/child labor and marriage. The Maldives is a common destination country for trafficked individuals from India and Bangladesh. Both Maldivian citizens and foreigners (including from Sri Lanka, Thailand, India, China, the Philippines, and Eastern Europe) are subject to forced prostitution. It is also a common practice for younger Maldivian girls to be trafficked to Male from other islands for domestic servitude.
