Consultant - Corporal Punishment & Trafficking
To provide necessary support in documentation for advocacy in corporal punishment and setting up MIS in Anti Human Trafficking Units.
The scenario of child abuse continues to be challenging in West Bengal despite improvement in some critical human development indicators.
Trafficking in West Bengal:
Though a sizeable number of cases of trafficking remain unregistered in West Bengal, one out of every eight children trafficked in India is from West Bengal (NHRC 2002-03) under the pretext of lucrative jobs and marriage. Large numbers of children go missing every day with 12-14% being recovered. CID, West Bengal has set up Anti Human Trafficking Units in four trafficking prone districts in West Bengal.
