Community Child Protection Committees (CCPCs)

In order to build community resilence, we rely on community volunteers to be on the lookout for child trafficking. Community Child Protection Committees are comprised of local and religious leaders, students, and community members. We train the committees on child protection. This training covers topics ranging from child development to trauma and how to deliver non-violent discipline for behaviour management. Most neighbourhoods are relatively small and members are able to notice if they have not seen a child for a while. With their training, they are able to take action to locate the child and, if appropriate, report to the authorities.
