Begging is a version of domestic servitude. Begging can be human trafficking when:

  • Someone makes you beg, in public or crowded places.
  • You don’t receive all the money you’ve been given for your begging.
  • Somebody hurts you or threatens you if you don’t give them the full amount.
  • Somebody hurts you or threatens you if you refuse to beg for them.
  • Somebody injured you so you look like you need medical help, to increase the chance of getting money from passers-by.
