Postcard campaign by GAA India for speedy enactment of Trafficking in persons Bill by the National Government

November 10th, 2020

As part of the advocacy campaign, the GAA India team in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana State sent about 50,000 signed postcards to the Prime Minister of India demanding immediate enactment of TOP( Trafficking in Persons Bill) Bill in Parliament. In the campaign the GAA team involved various categories of people including, children, students, parents, GAA network CSO representatives, school teachers, police officers, and other Government authorities, small and big business persons and many more.

Apart from the postcard campaign, the team along with the civil society also raised the issues with the State Crime Investigation Department in both states for immediate implementation of Government of India order to establish new Anti Human Trafficking Units (AHTU)  in each of the districts. 

This campaign was initiated looking at the success of similar intervention in past demanding for establishment of AHTUs in all the districts of both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana State.  in the month of July 2020 the Central Government of India passed an order for the establishment of Anti Human Trafficking Units in all districts across the country.

"We are extremely happy that our advocacy efforts have contributed to a national level change" said Subrat, the GAA Project coordinator from Terre des Hommes Netherlands.

He continued "This proves that advocacy does indeed inspire action. We are highly motivated to bring out further change by raising our voice more and sensitising those in power"

The GAA team along with its youth volunteers, GAA network CSOs continue to send postcards, representation letters and organise signature campaigns to the Crime Investigation Departments of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana to ensure a quick enactment of the Central Government order.
