The study’s instrument reveals that many people are aware of the dangers of female trafficking, but they are resistant to the various efforts put in place by these agencies to stop it. Finally, with recommendations that can aid in the abolition of this particular malady.
THE STUDY’S BACKGROUND
What a world we live in, a male-dominated world in which global economics concretizes a system of winners and losers, with poverty disadvantages and limited options for many as the consequences.
The environment is ripe for men’s sexual exploitation of women without bounds abuse of the worst kind, women are set up to lose in this system and the like buzzards circling a curbing member of the hard, business men prey on the world’s most vulnerable women, entrapping them within their web despicable sex slavery enterprises trading women far and wide as sex chatters.
Human trafficking is now organized by groups that are also involved in weapon and harcotics trafficking colliding with government officials in a dozen countries. There is no doubt that it is a lucrative business and possibly one of the most difficult to combat.
They are less visible than those caused by gun trafficking and human trafficking. Middlemen in the developing world are able to connect the supply and demand for cheap labor and sex in ways that were simply unthinkable not long ago. Though the concept of human trafficking is not difficult to grasp on its own, its dimensions and categorization are expanding by the day.
Suffice it to say that poor governance resulted in severe economic hardship for the masses. Then came the structural adjustment program (SAP) introduced in 1989 with its anti-poor condition amities, resulting in the generation of economic migrants and the phenomenon of brain drain amongst these economic migrants, who are today’s trafficked women and abuse children who feel victims of the international process of co modification of human beings, veracious sexual perverts, and organized criminal synagogues.
Many flaws in the educational sector have had an indirect impact on the economy. The over-reliance on paper certification has not aided in the development of the school curriculum. The educational system has been weakened as a result of mass brain drain.
This has made some so-called educated people vulnerable to human trafficking. How can one explain that a person who has risen to a certain level will agree to be trafficked by a complete illiterate business woman who cannot even express herself fluently in English language or a graduate from a Nigerian university to be trafficked? These people are ostensibly educated and should be an asset to a nation but have become a public enemy. Because the educational curriculum may have overlooked this issue, space was created for this social ill.
Subjects dealing with morals, such as Christian religious knowledge and Islamic religious knowledge, are gradually being phased out as teachers, but some employers are refusing to hire graduates from these courses. Social studies, which expose our children to the vices and virtues of society, are only taught in junior secondary schools. As a result, students must cope with the fictitious life of affluence and greed that has made female trafficking a huge success in our society.
The issue at hand is massive, and female trafficking as it is currently practiced is a relatively new addition to the dictionary of global loves. Trafficking is becoming more systematic in its occurrence, especially as the globalization process intensifies.
Despite the existence of prostitution in the past, modern female trafficking is an organized business, just as Atlantic slavery is around the world. Today, not only young girls, but also teenagers and mothers with children, are trafficked. This phenomenon spells disaster for female education and, as a result, national development.
As a result, this study looks into how education can be used to combat female trafficking.
OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
The study’s goal is to look more closely at the role of education in reducing female trafficking, which appears to have received little attention until recently.
Although one cannot substitute one person’s stolen life for that of another, education is effective in the fight against female trafficking.
It is a job that sounds too good to be true, and it most likely is. Education also works to create a skilled population and helps to reduce poverty, which is one of the driving forces for women who seek unskilled job opportunities abroad, trafficking of females, opportunity offered by schools, trade learning centers in order to be trafficked, which is done sometimes with their consent or against their consent.
These are traffickers, also known as (trolleys or machines), who entice them with material possessions and the promise of a better life abroad.
