WHO WE ARE

We are STOP ─ Stop Trafficking Of People

Stop Trafficking of People (STOP) is an initiative under the Branches of Hope that works in partnership with the local community to end human trafficking in and through Hong Kong.

Our goals are to raise awareness about trafficking, connect with key counter-trafficking groups, provide victims with support, allow their voices to be heard, and to serve as a catalyst for positive change in the fight against modern-day slavery. We respond to victims’ needs in four ways:

  1. Social Assistance & Legal Referral
  2. Community Outreach
  3. Network Building
  4. Public Education.

Please visit What We Do for more information on these four programs.
