About the British Asian Trust

The British Asian Trust is a diaspora-led international development organisation, that delivers high-quality programmes in South Asia. The Trust was founded in 2007, by HRH The Prince of Wales and a group of British Asian business leaders, to tackle widespread poverty, inequality and injustice in South Asia. The British Asian Trusts ’s focus areas in India are anti-trafficking, education, livelihoods, mental health, and conservation.

Prevention of Trafficking model

The British Asian Trust is looking to test a Prevention of Trafficking (PoT) model, previously developed by the Hummingbird Foundation (HBF) and now incubated by us. This model has been previously rolled out in districts of North and South 24 Parganas of West Bengal with implementing partners. We will now be implementing it in three new? districts to explore the efficacy of the model in a different geographical context, and test its effectiveness in reducing vulnerabilities linked to trafficking.

The PoT model aims to reduce the vulnerabilities that contribute to trafficking incidents through a sustainable, community-owned multi-stakeholder child safety net approach. Building the capacities of all stakeholders can promote joint community action and increase the accountability of the anti-trafficking ecosystem, thereby contributing to reducing trafficking. The model should incorporate learning and evidence to demonstrate its effectiveness and challenges.

Young people, who are the main stakeholders, are collectivised and trained to identify and take social actions to address various issues that increase their vulnerabilities at three levels i) personal ii) family and iii) community, thus resulting in incidents of trafficking. The collectives are safe spaces for young people to come together and discuss personal or peer child protection issues and avail strategic solutions.

Additionally, parents, community based institutions, and local governance are also included as an important collaborator to support young people, thereby forming a community level safety net. Thus, the model theorises that young people and all other stakeholders need to work together to combat trafficking.
