Former USAI intern, Danielle Khan Da Silva, co-directed and shot the award-winning Human Trafficking Awareness documentary “HAART Kenya” (click here to watch it: http://goo.gl/cvmwUo). Congratulations Danielle!

About the scale of the issue and the importance of awareness, Danielle says,

“Human trafficking is the second largest illegal trade after drugs, having surpasses arms and weapons. It affects people, predominantly women and children, all over the world. And it’s happening in our backyards.”

Danielle interned with the USAI in 2007 – 2008. She is a documentary photographer and filmmaker whose films focus on social and environmental justice. She is the founder and CEO of Photographers Without Borders, a volunteer organization that documents grassroots initiatives and tells stories of sustainable development.
