EHA is helping families to earn an income where they are, so that they have enough food to eat and are no longer dependent on the life promised by traffickers in order to survive.
The poultry farm Nazeeb and his family run is one such example.
Sharing best-practice and new techniques, farmers’ groups are helping people to work together to produce better crops. One farmers’ group in Bihar has won government awards for its excellent practice and the village has declared itself child-trafficking free: with a stable income their children are no longer vulnerable to trafficking.
Women’s savings groups, like the one Nazeeb’s mother is part of, allows women to save together and borrow at low-interest, enabling them to start small businesses which help sustain their families during the agricultural low season.
Business starter kits
Small business starter-kits, like the materials for the poultry farm received by Nazeeb, are helping families to become self-sufficient. EHA is providing families with the materials and the know-how to get their businesses off the ground.
facing trafficking head-on
Awareness training in schools and communities is helping people understand the risks of trafficking and see through deception tactics so often used by traffickers.
Vigilance committees facilitated by community volunteers are enabling communities to work together to share information and challenge traffickers who come to their village.
Legal support is helping families to make their voices heard in the legal system so that traffickers can be prosecuted and justice is brought for those who have suffered.
