'To live in a world free of human trafficking and modern day slavery; a world in which traffickers cannot operate; a world in which the Sophie Hayes Foundation does not need to exist'
In early 2009 Sophie led a talk with a group of vulnerable teenage girls in South London sharing her experiences to raise their awareness.
Sophie wrote the foreword for STOP THE TRAFFIK book: 'People Shouldn't Be Bought And Sold' written by Steve Chalke, with a chapter written by Cherie Blair.
Sophie accompanied STOP THE TRAFFIK to the United Nations to present their declaration in 2009 and she has been part of raising awareness with vulnerable young people.
In November 2009 Sophie delivered a talk to a business forum at the Dutch Embassy in London on the realities of sex trafficking in Europe.
In 2010 and 2011 Sophie has continued to support STOP THE TRAFFIK and the Metropolitan Police, as well as working hard to set up this foundation.
Mid November 2012 Sophie is invited to The House of Lords to speak to Lord McColl of Dulwich to discuss his Bill around Human Trafficking.
On November 25th Lord McColl of Dulwich opened his debate at the House of Lords with Sophie's story. Read more and watch the debate:
