Activities

World Vision is currently implementing a regional anti-trafficking project that covers Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. The goal of the Mekong Delta Regional Trafficking Strategy (MDRTS) project is to reduce the number of women and children trafficked for sex work or other forms of exploitative labor within and between the target countries. Supporting this goal are four primary objectives:

  1. Prevention of trafficking in persons through providing economic assistance for the vulnerable, strengthening children/youth participation in trafficking prevention, and raising awareness in local communities
  2. Protection of trafficked persons by researching current situation and trends, providing recovery and reintegration services, and capacity building of existing victim recovery service providers
  3. Prosecution of traffickers through greater case information exchange between local NGOs, international organizations, and law enforcement agencies and capacity building of appropriate government ministries to investigate, arrest, and convict traffickers
  4. Strengthen networks and improve communication, coordination, and cooperation among the five target countries to enhance the sharing of information, training and best practices in assisting trafficking victims in the target countries

In Lao PDR, World Vision Laos (WVL) is carrying out the following activities:

  • Develop children’s groups where children and youth are provided space to speak out against trafficking
  • Increase general awareness regarding negative effects of blind migration and trafficking in two districts of Savannakhet province
  • Conduct a survey to determine the characteristics of migration of youths into Thailand
  • Assist with reintegration of trafficking survivors returning to WVL’s project areas
  • Provide training for community peer educators that will disseminate prevention information in the villages
