Human trafficking resource for high schools
Our human trafficking resource has been created specifically for high school students in New Zealand. The resource provides an overview of human rights, human trafficking and modern day slavery. It has been designed to comply with level five curriculum requirements for social sciences in New Zealand, including the following achievement objectives:
- Understand how cultural interaction impacts on cultures and societies.
- Understand that people move between places and how this has consequences for the people and the places.
- Understand how people define and seek human rights.
The goal is to have this resource taught at all schools in New Zealand. We encourage people to learn about human trafficking, download a human trafficking resource, meet with the school principal or a dean of social sciences at a school in their community and advocate for this resource being taught in year 9 and 10 social science classes.
What to do with the high school resource on human trafficking
- Download and print the resource from our website
- Organise a meeting with the principal of head of department ("HOD") for social sciences in a school you are connected to or that is in your community
- At the meeting, give the principal/HOD the resource and tell him/her WHY it is essential that human trafficking is taught in schools
- Organise a follow-up meeting with the principal/HOD two weeks later to see whether the resource is being implemented
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how things went so we can improve it and get it more widely dispersed
