Child trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of children for the purpose of exploitation. It is a violation of their rights, their well-being and denies them the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Help And Care Society works with development partners, governments and non-governmental organizations on all aspects of anti-trafficking responses – prevention, protection and prosecution – and supports evidence-based research to strengthen interventions.
Protecting trafficked children requires timely victim identification, placing them in safe environment, providing them with social services, health care, psycho social support, and reintegration with family and community, if it is proven to be in their best interest. Help And Care Society assists by supporting training of professionals working with children including social workers, health workers, police and border officials to effectively deal with trafficking. Additionally,Help And Care Society supports governments in setting standards in dealing with child trafficking such as developing and training responsible personnel on child friendly interviewing techniques.
