Women & Child Protection
Title of the Project: Women and Child Protection against Abuse & Violence
Project Background: Women and children abuse is very common in our project operational area. Most of the time women are abused as domestic violence, physical and mental torture at work place as child labour and also for commercial sexual exploitation which is an organized crime that violates basic human rights. India has emerged as a source, destination and transit for both in-country and cross border trafficking. The problem of trafficking women and children for commercial sexual exploitation is especially challenging due to its many complexities and variation. Poverty, low status of women, lack of a protective environment and lack of education and ignorance of important information etc are some of the causes for trafficking of women and child.
As per our working experience in the field of women and child protection, we have gathered the experiences of the root causes of women and protection as follows.
v False promises of mirage
v High rate of unemployment
v Ignorance to take important information before Migration
v Selling of organ of the body
v Making Beggar
v Cruel Game
v Commercial Sex exploitation
v Superstitious beliefs / sacred sacrifice for personal success.
An approach is needed which will undertake preventive measures for abuse of women and child especially in vulnerable families and to enable rehabilitation & reintegration of the victims.
The aim of the women and child protection programme is to aware community about the consequences of women and child abuse or unsafe migration. Provide them information about the ways to practice safe migration and hence achieve dignified human living.
