Marketable skills and education are the best defense against human
trafficking. Here’s one way your support thwarts modern-day slave
In remote villages of India, traffickers lure innocents away from their
homes with promises of good jobs and better lives in the city. Once
separated from family and friends, it’s all too easy to fall prey to
modern-day slave traders.
To thwart traffickers, community vigilance groups keep track of
neighbors leaving for jobs and give them a number to call if they get
into trouble. CRS partners also teach villagers, especially young
people, marketable skills so they don’t need to seek employment far from
home. And for dropouts, among the most vulnerable to trafficking, bridge
schools allow children to return to classes.
This video introduces some of the people whose lives you touch and
protect with your support of CRS.
