"Shop in a Store With a Door" For Small Business Day

Thousands of young people are brought into Canada and as many as one million are sold into the international sex trade each year. Nashi is a volunteer group based out of Saskatoon that focuses on providing awareness locally... nationally and internationally on human trafficking.

Nashi President Savelia Curniski explains that the group goes into a country such as Ukraine and does seminars. "We are also in the process right now of building a safe home where the children would have a safe place to stay, but they would also a trade component where they can hopefully become economically sufficient".

Curniski got involved with the area of human trafficking having seen some of the human trafficking that was taking place in Ukraine. "Then I continued to do reading and research and realized that Ukraine was becoming a source country for human traffickers. I was personally very appalled by what I saw and had to make a decision personally whether I walk away from it or become involved".

She says the number of people taken are shocking."Girls are being taken out of Ukraine and though the numbers are very, very difficult to determine because it is such an underground movement we would estimate in the area of the 50,000 girls and boys 80 per cent of those that are taken are going into the sex trade and the other 20 per cent are going into low paid, unskilled, dangerous labour jobs".

Curniski was in Moose Jaw Thursday speaking at the Timothy Eaton Centre as a part of International Women's month.
