cooperation between non-governmental
organizations, the police and the
public is needed to prevent the trafficking
of women and children. The situation
needs the cooperation of NGOs to create
awareness among the population at
large, especially in its vulnerable
female and youth segments.
In September 2004, MCCSS fulfilled
this role in the community by starting
the project “Prevention
of Trafficking in Women and Children.”
The purpose of this programme is to
prevent trafficking of women and children
and to rehabilitate and re-integrate
victims and their families. As a first
step in this endeavor, research is
conducted to identify and monitor
trafficking areas. Informant relationships
are secured all over the city to learn
about specific trafficking incidences
and create a bond between the community,
social service and law enforcement.
