Ko Aotearoa tētahi tino whenua mō te hoko kōhine hei kairau, e ai ki tētahi pūrongo mō te hoko tāngata. Ko te nuinga he uri Māori, he uri moutere hoki. Ko te hoko tāngata, he hinonga hara e  horapa whānui ana i te ao. Ināianei, he rōpu aukati i te hoko tāngata kua whakatū kaupapa hei aukati i te mahi nei.

E ai ki te ripoata US Trafficking in Persons, ko Aotearoa tētahi whenua pūtake mo te hoko i ngā kōtiro mahi ai.

Hei tā Carter Quinley, “A lack of awareness and education then a lot of times those girls think they're going to get other jobs in the big cities but what happens is they're sold into either sexual exploitation and forced labour sometimes forced begging.”

Ko Carter Quinley tētahi o ngā mema o te rōpū whakakore i te hoko tāngata a Nvader, nā tētahi hunga no Aotearoa i Thailand taua rōpū i whakatū, ka taunaki hoki te rōpū tuku āwhina i te rawakore a Tearfund i a Nvader. Hei tā Carter Quinley ko te hunga rawakore te aronga matua mo te hunga taihara hoko tāngata.

“They're vulnerable indigenous communities who are poor who don't always have access to that education and they are very susceptible to traffickers who then go and pray on those communities or to traffic victims to the kind of big hubs like the cities in Bangkok and Shanghai.”

E ai anō ki tēnei rīpoata ko Aotearoa hoki tētahi whenua mo te tuku poka noa i te mahi ki ngā tāne me ngā wāhine. Huri noa i te ao e ai ki a Carter Quinley e whā tekau ma rima miriona tāngata kua hokona ā e kotahi rau rima tekau piriona tāra te hua pūtea ka kohikohia ia tau. Ināianei ka whakatū kaupapa a Nvader hei whakakore i tēnei raruraru.

“So Tearfund sponsors invader which is an anti-human trafficking organisation in South East Asia and the LBTL campaign is a way for NZers for kiwis to get involved in anti-trafficking efforts through eating and using only 2 dollars and 85 cents per day for all of your meals.

Ko ngā tūtohunga a te rīpoata me hāngai te titiro a Aotearoa ki te whakamohio atu i ngā tāngata hoko, me panoni hoki i te ture kia kore ai ngā mahi hara e whainahia me te whakarite kaupapa i te hoko tamariki me te whakakore i te pākaha, tinihanga me nga kupu tohutohu.
