JANUARY APPEAL: AML Intelligence partners with STOP THE TRAFFIK for donation campaign


WHEN you become an AML Intelligence member this month – we will donate €5 to STOP THE TRAFFIK, the anti-human trafficking organisation, it was announced today.

AML Intelligence, the world’s fastest growing Anti-Financial Crime and Compliance site and STOP THE TRAFIK have partnered this New Year to highlight the extent and toll of human trafficking.

As part of the partnership when you become a member of AML Intelligence for the special annual rate of €197 we will donate €5 to STOP THE TRAFFIK. Not only will you receive premium news, insight, opinion and analysis – you will also be helping a great cause!

The campaign will also see AML Intelligence and STOP THE TRAFFIK collaborate on a number of editorial projects to educate and inform the public about the prevalence of human trafficking in society, and what we can do to stop it. 

Ruth Dearnley OBE, CEO of STOP THE TRAFFIK welcomed the new partnership with AML Intelligence. The collaboration she said would help shine a light on the problem of human trafficking and bring fresh focus to the problem. “Human trafficking is a thriving, global business, driven by profit. Every organisation whose business it is to move, manage, and make money is at the forefront of the fight to raise risks for traffickers,” she said

Ruth added that “we believe this is only possible through collaboration, which is why STOP THE TRAFFIK is delighted to partner with AML Intelligence to work together against this crime.”

AML Intelligence Publisher, Stephen Rae said: “We are delighted to help such a good cause as STOP THE TRAFFIK. Human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry, with an estimated 40 million victims trapped in modern-day slavery. More than 70% of trafficking victims around the world are women and girls.” said

“In this partnership over Christmas and the New Year period we are highlighting the problem and also helping raise funds to prevent trafficking,” he added.

STOP THE TRAFFIK aims to prevent human trafficking globally through its innovative intelligence-led approach. This initiative builds collaboration between businesses, financial services, law enforcement and civil society to collect data about human trafficking. 

It’s estimated that 16 Million people are forced labour victims, often in domestic work, construction and agriculture, with 4.8 Million people forced into sexual exploitation.

In 2016, STOP THE TRAFFIK launched its STOP app, enabling people anywhere in the world to report suspicious incidents of human trafficking anonymously and securely. Information collected in the STOP app is fed directly into STOP THE TRAFFIK’s secure database where it is analysed. 

This data is transformed into insights which is then shared with the appropriate authorities and organisations who can enable an informed and target response to tackle human trafficking. 

STOP THE TRAFFIK collects and analyses data on human trafficking patterns across the world, with the aim of disrupting human trafficking. The charity has run geo-targeted campaigns and activities in 10 countries across Europe, North America, Africa and Asia. 

STOP THE TRAFFIK has over 150 partner organisations, with over 6 Million people reached through global campaigns on social media.
