Awareness of the complex phenomenon of THB for labour exploitation is important for all organisations that can come in contact with THB victims. Organisations can also raise awareness amongst the general public and amongst people that may themselves be vulnerable to THB for labour exploitation.

THB for labour exploitation is a complex phenomenon and many of its victims suffer from trauma and fear. For people who have never experienced THB for labour exploitation themselves it may be difficult recognising it, or realising how serious this situation is. It may also be difficult to understand how hard it can be for a victim of THB for labour exploitation to leave this situation. Dealing with cases of THB for labour exploitation needs more than just awareness. Officials can benefit from training to acquire special knowledge and skills.
