New App Shines a Light on Human Trafficking

February 08, 2024
By Tracy Abler, Justice Coordinator

"Journeying in Dignity. Listen. Dream. Act": this is the theme of the tenth International Day of Prayer and Awareness Against Human Trafficking on February 8, a day established in 2015 by Pope Francis on the feast day of Saint Bakhita, the Sudanese sister who was a victim of trafficking and a universal symbol of the Church's commitment against this scourge.

Talitha Kum is an international anti-trafficking network of more than 6,000 sisters, friends and partners. It was formally established in 2009 with the International Union of Superiors General (UISG) as an international initiative against human trafficking and exploitation, Talitha Kum promotes collaboration among networks organized at national, regional and continental level, actively supporting victims, survivors and people at risk. 


On January 30, Talitha Kum launched a new initiative: the “Walking in Dignity” app. The walking application invites everyone on the journey toward awareness of human trafficking and its prevention. All, particularly young people, are invited to download this App and engage. The application is designed to learn, engage, and care about the people facing human trafficking and to care for, heal, and empower survivors.

You can download the app from your App Store or Google Play.
