Strengthening existing policies of the Government to combat human trafficking of tribal women and girls in Jharkhand
Simdega, Gumla, West Singhbhum, Jamtara districts of Jharkhand
Human trafficking is one of the most heinous forms of organized crime and violation of human rights in the world. Trafficking of tribal women and minor girls continues to be a persistent issue in Jharkhand. In fact, Jharkhand has emerged as the major source for inter-state trafficking in India.
The trafficking prone districts of Jharkhand includes Simdega, Gumla, Khunti, Lohardaga, Garhwa, Sahibganj, Dumka, Pakur, West Singhbhum, Ranchi, Palamu, Hazaribagh, Giridih, and Latehar.
The majority of the victims either migrate or are trafficked to metropolitan cities as domestic workers, construction workers and many other unorganized sectors. 90% of the workforce from Jharkhand is engaged in the informal sector.
This project has served the tribal women and girls and has protected them to live a dignified life. We have rescued and prevented women and girls from being trafficked and also linked them with different schemes and provided them job opportunities within the state.
The vision of the project is to make the most prone districts free from human trafficking
- Effective grievance redressed mechanism for human trafficking, access to services of support and guidance to unorganized workers and Trafficked persons
- Coordination among the line department (Labour Department, Social Welfare, Welfare, Home Department (Police & CID) makes policies ineffective and community access to legal aid and social security becomes a distant dream for the vulnerable communities and victims.
- . Strengthen awareness about the key roles and responsibilities/ functions being played by various committees such as District Child Protection Units (DCPU) under ICPS, Anti-Human Trafficking Units (Police), and its interface with the civil society etc.
- Strengthen monitoring and tracking systems of various committees being promoted to combat Human Trafficking, oversee the implementation gaps in accessing benefits under Unorganized Workers’ Social Security Act, 2008.
