CASE STUDY: PENNY’S CHALLENGE

Penny was almost 29 when she was transported from Rwanda to the United Kingdom. She was told that she would be able to start a new life in the UK. Instead, she ended up held hostage in a small flat in London. She had unknowingly become a commodity in what is now being called the world’s fastest growing illegal trade—in people.

When Penny agreed to meet the agent, to whom she was introduced by a friend, she was unaware that human trafficking even existed. Penny said she was so focused on getting out of the country that she never stopped to think of the possible consequences. Penny was told the journey to the UK would cost her £1,000 pounds, and the fact that she didn’t have the money was not a problem. She would be given accommodation and a job when she arrived, enabling her to eventually pay the money back.
