Challenge

Human trafficking is at crisis proportions affecting an estimated 27 million people globally, with India and Nepal considered to be major hubs of sex trafficking for women and girls. The physical, psychological, and social effects on victims are severe, including extreme physical trauma, exposure to serious health risks such as HIV/AIDS, extreme mental health stress, and social exclusion and isolation. This project will protect children from trafficking and provide healing care to survivors.

Solution

GFC's community-based partners SKHM and CAP are uniquely positioned to identify children at risk and understand the social/economic drivers of sex trafficking in these regions. Our response model is 4-part : Identify trafficked children & remove from harm; Rehabilitate by immediate care, medical services, legal support, & counseling; Reintegrate through safe family reunification, continued education & skills building; and, Prevent Trafficking through education and cultural awareness building.

Long-Term Impact

This project will increase the number of children helped by SKHM's and CAP's proven anti-trafficking programs. SKHM has reduced trafficking in Kolkata, especially in the red-light districts, stressing empowerment and the right to survival, development, and protection from exploitation & abuse. CAP's innovative Mobile Counseling unit reaches girls where they work, with information about options & services. Now more children can receive CAP's counseling, education, and job placement services.
