Human Trafficking Network
Ton Brouwer and Elly Koenig work in collaboration with the Dutch Foundation of Religious Against Trafficking of Women (SRTV) bringing with them a network of 18 Grail countries. Since the IGA in 2006 there has been at least one contact person in each Grail country who was asked to find out if trafficking of women and girls is taking place in her country. If her country is one where victims come from, a country of destination or a country of destination and/or transit like in the Netherlands. Many of them have been active since then by sending their findings to Ton who published it in the monthly GJOP Bulletin (Global Justice Overcoming Poverty) and in Crossroads to inform the whole Grail.
There is a growing awareness that trafficking of women is taking place all over the world. Prevention is very important. There are information leaflets available in 49 different languages and one with pictures for illiterates. There is more material available for whoever wants to get more information. It can also be downloaded from internet: http://srtv.info.
The Human Trafficking Network sends the latest news to each issue of the bulletin Global Justice Overcoming Poverty (GJOP).
