Traffickers often target village schools and communities to prey on vulnerable families and children to either sell them into the sex trade or to brokers who buy children to work in factories in far-flung cities.

Justice and Care has recently established Vigilant Youth Groups to prevent trafficking by identifying potential threats in remote Indian villages. These established youth groups are proving to be a critical prevention mechanism. Last month, when a youth group found out that one of the children from their village had been taken away on the pretext of a good job, it sprung into action by not only informing the Justice and Care team but also shared the trafficker’s phone number with the Child Welfare Committee. The local police, District Child Protection Unit and the village headman were also informed about the incident.

Immediate action was taken by our team with the help of our external stakeholders.As a result of tremendous pressure from all quarters the trafficker was forced to let go of the child so he could return home, all within two hours of being taken.

The boy was reunited with his family and is currently receiving rehabilitation care.

Our objective behind establishing the youth groups has been exactly this - that the knowledge to handle human trafficking be shared with the very communities, children are taken away from - and that they are able to immediately, lawfully and effectively handle these situations.
