The passport exhibition explores the plight of young people especially girls; looking for green pastures out of their countries and end up in the snares of human trafficking. Human trafficking in Uganda and across the world is a vice that is going on and is hardly given enough attention.

Artists; Katesi Jacqueline and Kasirisimbi Tadeo through their works share the stories, plight and experiences of this trade and its victims.

Human trafficking especially child trafficking in Uganda has been significantly griming; organized through unofficial networks of relatives, friend, neighbors, parents and village mates even though total strangers are also involved in the practice. Recent report by Save the Children in 2006 and ILO /IPEC, 2007 have shown that this heinous crime is still going on behind our doors and many people appear to be Un-informed about the extent of the Vice.

There is no doubt that children, women and young men are trafficked for various reasons and many are involved in hazardous forms of labor including commercial sex, domestic labor, commercial agriculture, fishing, mining, armed conflict, drug trafficking and urban informal sector. Some are trafficked under the guise of better jobs in other countries.

Through the exhibition, the artistes aim at creating Awareness/ Sensitizing the public about the vice of human trafficking which is next door to all of us and create dialogue around the subject.
