Nearly half a million victims of human-trafficking in India will have access to vocational training through a government program recently announced by President Ram Nath Kovind.

“Human trafficking is not only a social evil, it is a crime against humanity,” Kovind said as he launched the new three-month course, which will connect participants with the Skill India program born in 2015 to train more than 400-million people by 2022.

This news follows an anti-trafficking bill passed by cabinet last month. It’s expected to be voted into law by parliament.

Christian Children’s Fund of Canada understands the value of vocational training. It helps vulnerable people build self-confidence and knowledge to make a sustainable income and contribute to community growth.
