Stop Trafficking
Stop Trafficking:

Phenomenon and gravity of human trafficking is on rise worldwide and India is also not untouched with its impact. India today, is a major source, transit as well as destination country. All forms of human trafficking exist in India.

There are various reasons for the existence and continuance of human trafficking in India. One of the major reasons is lack of information about the government and non government services and connectivity among the service providers. But, even though, India is one of the major achievers in the field of Information and Communication Technology, the social welfare sector in India has not fully utilized the potential of the Information and Communication Technology. Therefore, to address these issues, http://www.stoptrafficking.in (a web portal to combat human trafficking in India) is launched.The web portal is primarily a network of stakeholders – government organizations, non-government organizations, academia, civil society, victims and the media - to smoothen the service delivery to victims of human trafficking in India.

The Initiative is based on the principle that human trafficking is the worst form of slavery and a network of all available services is required to combat it. The network can be best strengthened by using the Information and Communication Technology.

ARZ, Goa , India
Arz was conceived in 1997 by a group of Development Professionals from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Bombay, with the idea of social work interventions in the area of crime with persons who have been victims of commericial sexual exploitation, those who are perpetrators and those who are vulnerable to both.

The organization is registered under the Indian Societies Registration Act (1860), Bombay Trust Act (1950) and U/s 80(G) of the Income Tax Act. Although the organization works primarily in Goa, it also extends services in the form of liasing, to certain districts of Karnataka, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, West Bengal and Orissa which have been identified as chief source states and neighboring countries of Nepal and Bangladesh as chief source countries. Key functioning areas include prevention, protection, rescue, repatriation, rehabilitation, health, after-care, re-integration, prosecution of perpetrators, legal counselling, economic rehabilitation, research, documentation, training and advocacy.

The organization has been appointed as the nodal NGO in the Integrated Anti-Human Trafficking Unit which was set up by the Goa Police for the purpose of providing witnesses, conducting rescue operations along with police, training and counseling of rescued persons, assisting in interviews of rescued persons, networking with other NGOs for all activities, empowerment of rescued persons and ensuring their proper rehabilitation. This has given the organization the authority to start working more closely with the system. It has clearly defined the role of Arz in working towards combating trafficking in Goa along with the criminal justice system.
