World’s Children is funding a three-year Prevention of Child Trafficking Project in India. This project will provide 30,000 people in villages in India with the knowledge about how traffickers dupe women or simply snatch unwatched girls.

With a blanket of watchful eyes and awareness training, we believe child trafficking can be stopped in this targeted area, which has a total population of about 151,000 people. We plan to expand this project to more villages in the future.

Learn more about the project
The Prevention of Child Trafficking Project is a three-year project that will cost $18,000 a year. World’s Children is working with a group of Catholic nuns, we call the “Sisters,” to protect the anonymity of these brave women. We have worked with them for several decades and we currently support five orphanages that they operate. Since 2011, the Sisters have worked with ChildLine India, a countrywide hotline created to prevent child abuse.

The Sisters will hold assemblies like this one in 48 schools to educate 10,000 children about traffickers.

Over a three-year period, the Sisters will educate and organize 30,000 people living in 48 villages. An estimated 6,000 girls and 4,000 boys will learn how to thwart would-be traffickers.

From those 10,000 children, 482 of the most dedicated kids will form the core of 48 child clubs—one in each village.

These village women are learning about the tricks of child traffickers in a meeting organized by the Sisters.

An additional 7,500 women who belong to existing Self Help Groups will gain similar training. In each of the 48 participating villages, a Community Vigilant Committee will be formed comprising 528 adult members.

Providing these 30,000 people with the knowledge about how traffickers operate, the Sisters believe they can stop child trafficking in this area.
