Expertise: Child Labor and Trafficking Prevention
The project focuses on helping vulnerable members of earthquake affected, trafficking-prone communities through a livelihoods approach. World Education is mobilizing local NGOs, microfinance co-operatives, mothers groups, women’s saving and credits groups to assist with core activities.
Partner NGOs have multiple approaches to ensure safe migration messages are spread, and work to protect vulnerable youth and children. Rather than assisting with food and shelter relief, World Education is helping to rebuild livelihoods in these communities so that the most vulnerable families have sustained incomes and ensure future migrants are equipped with skills and training.
By supporting these communities to build back their businesses and livelihoods we can better support surviving children and youth and prevent trafficking.
Vulnerability criteria are based on families and communities who have a history of trafficking, disadvantaged groups at high-risk of trafficking, loss of a major breadwinner, loss of a parent, seriously injured family members, loss of land as a result of the earthquake or landslides, loss of work opportunities, extreme poverty or family dysfunction. The project is being implemented in Nuwakot, Kavre and Sindhupalchok districts.
