Challenge

About 300000 girls and women between the ages of 6-24 from tribal belts of India have been trafficked and forced into work. These girls are vulnerable to physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Spreading awareness about trafficking and migration is not solving the problem. We need to campaign and intervene at source levels finding alternative measures. We are implementing a project in Jharkhand, Chattisgarh, Orissa , North East; Megalaya, Mizoram, Manipur , Assam, Mumbai, Bihar, UP and Delhi.

Solution

-Create awareness in villages about the situation of domestic workers through street plays, videos, press, handouts, radio & television programs, and debate. -Rescue and rehabilitation of children and young women from forced labour and/or abuse

Long-Term Impact

-Reduced exploitation of women and children through designed and implemented practices in source areas -To bring about an attitudinal change in the general public regarding children and their rights.
