Anti-trafficking mission to begin in Assam

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 21 - Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi today said his newly-floated foundation will begin its mission from Assam, to be replicated across the country and worldwide in a phased manner.

The Kailash Satyarthi Children Foundation, which would set up a rehabilitation and welfare fund aimed at ensuring safe repatriation and reintegration of the victims of trafficking and slavery, is expected to finalise the action plan and roadmap within a couple of months.

Talking to mediapersons today, the Nobel laureate said that initially his foundation is aiming to mobilise Rs 1 crore from some potential donors, including corporate houses. The State government too had been requested to contribute an amount, to which the Chief Minister agreed, he said. The foundation�s mission is to create, implement and advocate child-friendly policies.

He said, �During the breakfast meeting with Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today, I put forward three suggestions, which include concrete and immediate steps from the State government when it comes to providing medical care and facilitating social reintegration, which should be backed by follow-up action. I also pressed for legal cushion for the victims after they are freed.

�Further, I asked the Chief Minister to appoint a dedicated senior official at Assam House in New Delhi, who should be able to look into migration and other related issues of the people of the State. The official would prove crucial for those lured from remote places,� he said.
