With this grant, TAABAR Society seeks to reduce the number of children engaged in handicraft workshops across Jaipur city by contributing to a significantly increased number of children rescued from exploitation, and high-quality support for their recovery. This will be done by focusing on increasing collaboration among stakeholders, increasing accountability and responsiveness, and deepening the capacity of the stakeholders to competently handle child trafficking situations. This focus will result in an increased number of rescues, increased number of prosecutions of perpetrators and increased level of deterrence of subcontractors against the use of child labour. Awareness and sensitization programming will lead to more effective reintegration, increased access to compensation and justice and decrease the rate of re-trafficking. In addition, the improvements to shelter homes and the creation of child-friendly elements in police stations will result in better care and protection of rescued children.
