Human-trafficking survivors to be offered skills-training in India
Government program will benefit almost 500,000 participants
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.
