World Day Against Trafficking in Persons is observed every year on 30th July. This year, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) calls on all to ‘act to protect and assist trafficked persons.’ The issue of trafficking has been a pressing one especially in the context of vulnerable children. With PCVC’s experience on field and ground realities at hand, it has been observed that unsafe migration and trafficking of children for work takes place on a daily basis between source and receiving states. Children are found working in pathetic conditions for 15-16 hours a day with little or no wages in return. Not only are they victims of trafficking but many also end up becoming victims of abuse.

To highlight the significance of this day, we bring to you a successful case intervention done by PCVC in the state of Bihar.

One of PCVC’s core program is prevention of potential child labourers at entry and exit points at both source and receiving states. These children are victims of trafficking and unsafe migration leaving source states such as Uttar Pradesh and Bihar for working in metros like Mumbai, Hyderabad and Jaipur. In order to stop children from entering the labour market, regular tracking and prevention is done at railway station and bus depots of these crucial states and districts. Keeping in mind the pattern of children migrating to metros from the state of Uttar Pradesh for work, PCVC started its intervention here with focus on the district of Bahraich from where maximum movement of children is observed.
