Awareness

Addressing Vulnerabilities

Child Protection

Vulnerable Communities: Community-led activities are an important prevention tool. We take initiatives such as the Community Vigilance group, led by local adolescent girls by forming adolescent group, youth group and women’s groups, which has mobilized villagers to detect and prevent trafficking. We do prevention, protection and prosecution for combat modern days slavery / Human Trafficking. Under prevention we use film screening on Human Trafficking issue and theatre to empower marginalized, uneducated and poor communities with improved awareness, knowledge and life skills to reduce their vulnerability to trafficking. We also used theatre as a tool for researching with community factors leading to proliferation of this heinous crime.

We work on “Be Smart, Be Safe” policy which describes the tactics criminal groups use to coerce and traffic victims, the risks of trafficking, what one can do to protect themselves against illegitimate groups, what are victims’ rights and how community can get help.

 Our organization promotes safe communities for children with a focus on children in dangerous or difficult situations and environments. These are children imperiled by their exposure or vulnerability to isolation, neglect, violence, hazardous or exploitative work, early marriage, trafficking and abuse.
