Through years of casework at the grassroots, we have established credibility and close relations with the State as a pioneering organisation in the fight against this horrific crime. We support the State and add momentum through collective action to tackle human trafficking by undertaking the following initiatives:
A path-breaking project carried out for the British High Commission, Foreign Commonwealth Office, and global textile giant Marks & Spencer (M&S), aimed at facilitating and promoting an abuse and harassment-free work environment in the manufacturing supply chain of the garment industry in India.
A central aspect of our role in this unique assignment was to also carry out meticulous interventions in two factories on prevention of sexual harassment in the M&S supply chain. The interventions used creative forms keeping the needs of the workers in mind. These included street theatre, art installations, comic books, workshops and training sessions. This project has positively impacted the lives of over 2000 factory workers in India.
An exclusive research program on cross-border trafficking and safety along the Indo-Bangladesh border. The objectives of the study included measuring the prevalence of cross-border trafficking and mapping awareness levels and incidences of crime in vulnerable pockets in the area.
This study was commissioned by the Maharashtra State Commission for Women (MSCW) to carry out research on child marriage and its relationship with human trafficking. This was accomplished by identifying datasets where the linkage has been established, understanding causes and effects of child marriage and sex trafficking, which include social and historical factors, and analysing the current legal framework with regard to both the phenomena and recommendations on tackling the problem in Maharashtra.
WMS analysed judgements received in 52 cases handled by the organisation between 2017 and 2019. The overall conviction rate stood at 30.8% with 73 accused convicted. The conviction in trafficking cases under the Immoral Traffic Prevention Act, 1986 was 35.7% while the national average according to the National Crime Records Bureau during the same period was 25%. The study also reported that the average time taken for the progression of the cases being followed up by WMS was 4 years, 4 months and 24 days (Median: 4 years, 3 months and 28 days). According to a study conducted by Daksh, the average number of days taken for a criminal case to progress in India is 2184 days or 6 years.
