The success of the Organisation’s reputation and ability to achieve its vision of “sustainability” rests on the cultivation of trust, confidentiality, and effective communication. HATW is an Australia-based not-for-profit organisation dedicated to tackling human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and human slave labour. HATW aims to achieve this through education. We believe education is the great equalizer and the key to preventing these atrocities. It also provides opportunities by empowering people to create a brighter future for the whole community.
