What is Vital Voices doing to help stop trafficking in women and girls?
Vital Voices Trains Leaders to Fight Trafficking.
Vital Voices Global Partnership brings together emerging women leaders who are poised to make a difference on trafficking in women and girls to receive instruction from top anti-trafficking experts, to gain critical field experience, and to cultivate new skills, alliances, and ongoing support for their work. Members of the Vital Voices Network return home to partner with government agencies, social service centers, counselors, the legal community, and other NGOs to help the estimated 800,000-900,000 women and girls who are shipped each year across and within national borders into modern-day slavery.
Vital Voices works with NGO Leaders and Government Officials to Fight Trafficking.
Vital Voices includes at least one segment on trafficking of women and girls in each of our leadership programs, so that women leaders in business, politics and civil society gain an understanding about this horrific form of exploitation and ways to combat it. Vital Voices also works with government officials and nongovernmental leaders from countries such as Japan, Hungary, Russia, Belarus, India and Cambodia as they strengthen outreach networks and draft anti-trafficking legislation for their countries.
Vital Voices Raises Awareness to Fight Human Trafficking.
Vital Voices has established an annual award honoring individuals who are making a difference in trafficking, thereby calling attention to the heroic work being done, and the challenges that remain.
