Welcome to COATNET

COATNET is a Christian network that combats human trafficking

Each year, thousands of people are deceived and sold into slavery as forced labourers, prostitutes or beggars. COATNET—Christian Organisations Against Trafficking in Human Beings—is a network that links together many Christian groups which are fighting human trafficking. COATNET members work together across borders to:

  • Raise public awareness about trafficking in human beings;
  • Fight the root causes of vulnerability, such as poverty and lack of job alternatives;
  • Advocate for migration and economic policies that reduce the vulnerability of people to trafficking;
  • Advocate for better anti-trafficking laws that more effectively protect victims and punish traffickers;
  • Cooperate with authorities, churches, and relevant civil society actors to challenge the phenomenon of human trafficking;
  • Help trafficking survivors start a new life.
