About the Project
The Salvation Army has not been silent on the delinquency of human trafficking, particularly on child trafficking. Through the Mchinji rehabilitation social centre, children that are exploited through various forms of child abuse and exploitation such as child labour, sexual exploitation and domestic servitude are rescued and rehabilitated at the centre for a few months before they are reunited to their families. By community mobilisation, sensitisation and community child protection teams (CPT) established and trained, the communities have been empowered to identify, respond with issues of child trafficking around their communities. Various relevant and concerned government departments, offices, NGOs and stakeholders have been partnered to help reduce the problem in networking with The Salvation Army centre in Mchinji. The centre has partnered with UNICEF, Norwegian Church Aid and main stream of government arms on policy making and closely worked with community to mitigate child trafficking issues through awareness and advocacy for policy making on child protection policies etc.
