Anti-human trafficking

Trafficking in people is nothing new even in the remote areas of Negros. However, what is new is the brisk traficking in minors. Poverty is the main factor which pushes young people to seek work outside their local area.

It came to the attention of the Foundation through one of the members of the KK asking help to locate their child, who had been taken to Manila for work and from whom nothing had been heard from for more than two years. Other members then began to relate similar stories. This was something that we could not ignore. The main task of this project, however, is to engage the relevant government agencies to do their job. The laws on anti-trafficking are very good and the penalties are severe.

The main task is to give seminars and forums to all kinds of groups. Primers and posters are also being prepared for disemination througout the whole of the south of Negros. Two municipalities have now enacted local ordinances to help combat trafficking in people especially minors. Regular meetings of pertinet government agencies have been organized at invitation from the Foundation staff member. We have only one full time worker in this project.
