Human trafficking is the fastest growing human rights violation and criminal act in the world. It encompasses a whole gamut of abuse that spreads from sale for sex, forced child marriage, child labour, beggary, slavery and worse.

KSS has been working to prevent trafficking on the Indo-Nepal border in cooperation with the border security forces, officials and various non-governmental organizations. Our activities include awareness raising and legal sensitization camps. Such workshops have been organised at the police lines of district headquarters and with the Anti Human Trafficking unit of the Uttarakhand Police. In such trainings the focus is on protection, safety and rehabilitation.

In 2015, post the devastating earthquake in Nepal, there was an alarming rise in cases of human trafficking. KSS President Ms. Jaya Misra had then conducted an in-depth study on the ‘Post Disaster Possibilities of Cross Border Trafficking around Nepal’ by touring Sindhupal Chowk and other areas which had borne the worst brunt of the disaster.

India and Nepal- much like the rest of the world have numerous laws that aim to curb trafficking of women and children. Yet poor implementation and commercial greed have rendered these laws ineffective. KSS is dedicated to advocate for stronger laws and better implementation in both countries.
