Quotes
It turns out that trafficking victims are not only women and children, but also men. And traffickers can be anyone -- even your own family and friends. Poverty is not the main factor that leads people to become victims of human trafficking.

— Heru Darmawan, student, who attended the MTV EXIT training.
I learned how to prevent human trafficking, for example, do not rush, ask questions, do not give my personal things to other people, such as passport and mobile phone.

It is important for young people to get involved in the fight against human trafficking because they are full of ideas and innovation. Young people can absorb the words of their peers easily, which is why this campaign is so effective.
