Training on Human Trafficking (women and children) for the staff of HAWCA peace building center

Human trafficking is one of the most tragic human rights violation issues that exist in Afghanistan.

On 11 July a training on Human Trafficking was organized for the teachers in our Peace Building Center. The program was to contribute in the campaign of providing awareness to the public on what Human Trafficking is. The program covered topics clarifying how Human trafficking splinters families, violates human rights, undermines the rule of law and spurs other transnational criminal activity and how it threatens public safety and national security.

Part of the training was focused on how smugglers smuggle women and children and use them as prostitutes, beggars etc to earn money.

Such programs are necessary for the Afghan community so that they could have a clear understanding of what Human Trafficking is and how to protect themselves and their children from becoming victims of Human trafficking.
