The German Consulate General Kolkata and Jabala Action Research Organisation organized a day-long conference on ‘Awareness building to Fight Against Human Trafficking’.
Since March 2017 the German Consulate General Kolkata has been funding an awareness building project by the NGO Jabala to Fight Against Human Trafficking. Project ‘SAMPARKA’ was conducted in four districts of West Bengal (Alipurduar, Birbhum, Murshidabad and North 24 Parganas) where young women and adolescents are most affected by this scourge. Under this networking project young women, girls and local stakeholders formed Human Rights Defenders’ Systems as well as Adolescent Peer Groups. Over 185,000 young people were reached by various events and activities. This conference was the concluding event of the project.
