The campaign against human trafficking focuses on prevention, protection and prosecution with the objective of tackling the causes and consequences of the cross border trade from neighboring countries. The program components include research, documentation and dissemination, awareness & mobilization, networking & coordination, advocacy & lobbying, augmenting informed mobility; community based programs for high risk groups, rescue & right based repatriation of victims, and support reunification/rehabilitation.
The campaign has come up with exclusive cross border prevention and protection models like life guard center at cross border transit points, community vigilance groups, halfway homes and toll free anti trafficking helpline. These models were outright success and it has been appreciated at forums at state, national and regional level. Few these models are already been replicated by NGOs working on the issue of trafficking. The organization’s role in anti trafficking movement has been widely recognized by Govt. of India and Govt. of Nepal by nominating its representation in various high level committees formed by the respective government to address the issue of trafficking.
The campaign has been effective in bringing together cross border stake holders like law enforcing agencies, district administration, media, civil societies, judiciary, Community and Panchayats to counter the human rights violation. One of the major breakthroughs was the formation of a Regional level network “Cross Border Anti Trafficking Network (CBATN)” to address the cross border issues that influences the anti human trafficking program in South Asia.
