Trafficking Prevention

community presence

Our Community Health Workers not only provide a reassuring presence in the local community but also help prevent sickness and disease – a cause and consequence of human trafficking, abuse and exploitation.

Why?

Sickness and disease increase vulnerability to human trafficking and other forms of exploitation. Lack of access to healthcare exacerbates this for the poor and marginalised.

This is why we do what we do!

What?

Community healthcare is delivered through our rural development programme under the banner of Kapaade Akka (protection sister).

Local presence

We have over thirty community health workers recruited locally and working in more than 60 villages where women are particularly at risk of exploitation and trafficking.

Education

A key part of the health worker’s role is education – basic health, hygiene and nutrition - to help prevent disease and ill-health.

Screening

Our health workers are also able to administer basic health screening and to advise when people need to visit a doctor, clinic or hospital.

Medical Camps

The health workers assist on medical camps – the visit of a doctor and other health professionals to a village – but they come into their own over the next few weeks ensuring patients take their medication and attend follow-up hospital appointments and tests.

How?

We want to recruit, train and support more community health workers for more villages.

With your help, we can.

can make it happen

We want to empower more women so that they are equipped to resist or avoid exploitation and abuse, and help more women escape and recover.

You can help by donating to our Trafficking Prevention fund to help at-risk women through our holistic empowerment programmes.
