Prevention of Trafficking in women & children

In the present scenario trade of women & children are becoming a big threat of the society. Unfortunately the much required humane value had been deteriorated till such an extent that women & child are frequently sold even cheaper than a goat. Our organization is partner of strong network ATSEC, India working for combating of trafficking abuse.

From last several years we are engaged in activities that target prevention of trafficking in women and children. We had also been assisted by UNDP-TAHA for this program. We established a Help Line operational with toll free No. 18001801000 for supporting the trafficked & HIV/AIDS victims at state capital Patna. The helpline was operational for two years. Preventive activities like inter religious forum, mass mobilization, and dialogue with communities, media & PRIs had been conducted under this programme. We organized orientation program among different stake holders like PRI members, religious leaders, transporters, investigating police officers, prosecutors & PTC trained constable cum Thana Munsi & prosecutors on rescue and rehabilitation related laws like on immoral trafficking prevention ACT 1956 as well.  83 persons were sensitized on this issue. Senior officers of district administration like District Magistrate (DM), superintendent of police (SP), Deputy Superintendent of police (DSP), Deputy Development commissioner (DDC), and District Welfare officer (DWO) also contributed their valuable time in such training program. We are grateful to UNODC, New Delhi for financial and technical guidance for perusing our anti trafficking measures. We also organized follow up training programs for police officials with the support of Save the Children.

We also worked for rescue and rehabilitation of trafficked girls/women. We successfully integrated many of them in their respective families. 23 unfortunate trafficked girls were rescued and rehabilitated. We are active partner of ATSEC (Network of civil society organization) against trafficking. Furthermore we organized HIV- test camps for the vulnerable group.

We did not limit our effort to destination point only but also arranged meeting in communities from which Girls are trafficked and transported. We organized several meetings with different stakeholders and community to sensitize on the issue of trafficking in Sitamarhi district (origin & transit & destination point) around Bhitha More. Bhitha More in Sitamarhi   is adjacent to Nepal boarder being a vulnerable point for cross boarder trafficking., our activities like meeting with PRIs, Media, CBOs, communities  was taken up around Bhiitha More of Sitamadhi district looking at the its vulnerability for the said issue. Also we have had several meetings with administration on issue on checking/reducing the degree of cross boarder trafficking.
