All for Humanity Alliance Student Scholarship Program

Understanding the Human Trafficking and Child Sexual Exploitation Problem

Today, more than any time in human history, more than 40 million youth around the world are victims of human trafficking, having been kidnapped or coerced into sexual, labor, and other forms of exploitation and slavery. In partnership with AuthenticID, a leading fraud prevention and identity verification platform that has committed its technology and significant resources to address and help end human trafficking, Pepperdine University has joined the cause by calling upon students to raise awareness of the critical issue with a scholarship opportunity.
