CULTURE - FOOD - DISCUSSION

Export Quality will gather the community to raise
awareness, and prompt change to end sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. These are grave issues that warrant the attention of the community at-large. The Philippines is the world’s top exporter of women, of which 30% end up in the global sex trade. From the 1980s on, at least 5,000 Filipinas annually are trafficked through mail-order bride agencies
or international match-making agencies. Many of these women become victims of wife battery, divorce (70%), and even homicide. Whether domestic or international, sex trafficking subjects women and children to grave abuse, slavery and exploitation. We urge you to join us in exposing these insidious problems.
