Trafficking survivors turn guards

Ranchi, Feb. 22: They have shed their tag of victimhood. And now they will acquire the uniform of guards.

Sixty trafficking survivors started their livelihood training as security guards at the short-stay home in Bijupara, Chanho block of Latehar district, today.

The three-month training has been organised by CRPF, home department, government of India, in collaboration with NGOs Bhartiya Kisan Sangh and Action Against Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation of Children (Atsec). Two batches will have 30 girls each.

The event kicked off as chief guest and additional DIG G.S.Rath lit the ceremonial lamp. “The NGOs are training the survivors of trafficking to be economically independent and live in the mainstream,” Rath said, adding that efforts were on to make Jharkhand a zero-trafficking zone.

“The CRPF is also to be lauded for this kind of training,” Rath said.

Alok Raj, CRPF inspector-general, also praised the NGOs and termed the training as a people friendly exercise.
