Shutting Down the 'Family Business'

In the absence of government action on human trafficking, teachers in Mexico are using games to break the cycle of human trafficking.
 
A common ambition among students: “‘I want to be a trafficker like my grandfather,’” says a project leader in Tlaxcala state, a notoriously violent trafficking hub.
 
Teachers—who wish to remain anonymous—devised a snakes and ladders game to shift students’ attitudes about human trafficking, and stop girls and boys from getting sucked into what, for many of them, is the “family business.”
 
But as Mexico awaits an anti-trafficking strategy that is a year overdue, such programs remain few and far between.
