Children's rescued from human trafficking dance as part of the group activities at the shelter home in Bihar, India.
Prayas a community based project that help children rescued from human trafficking.
Of the 28 states in India, Bihar and Utter Pradesh rank among the poorest on variety of human development indicators and in addition, they have large populations of dalits and adivasis. Combined in some cases with poor enforcement of the relevant laws, these issues result in a concentration of bonded labour and trafficking affecting the poorest communities. In many places, there is a culture of fear and silence around bonded labour, sexual exploitation and trafficking that increases the vulnerability of each family, as they face these issues on their own.
