Challenge

Due to extreme levels of poverty, trafficking of young women is very difficult to eradicate, it is estimated that over 60% of girls who are released from their traffickers through law enforcement are eventually re-trafficked. Most trafficking survivors face a lifetime of stigma, and for this reason have extreme difficulties in finding livelihood opportunities . >54% of all marriages in West Bengal are child marriages,& Out of the total number of girls trafficked in India, 42% from West Bengal.

Solution

Jabala through providing meaningful livelihood options will economically rehabilitate 50 survivors by imparting skill training on housekeeping, motor driving, herbal gardening. Functional literacy, soft skills training, cultural and sports & nutritional support.etc will be given. The girls will act as role models for 2500+ other survivors & vulnerable young women in villages and cities. Jabala will spread awareness among families & community & advocate with, government for proactive actions.

Long-Term Impact

Sensitized and aware families & community will take preventive action to stop trafficking, child marriage and VAWG(Violence Against Women & Girls). Government shall take concrete planned action for rehabilitation of survivors. It is envisaged that more than 150000+ population can be reached through this program through awareness , involving media and government. The investment made on the young women shall pay dividend by saving the lives of other vulnerable girls and young women .
