Prevention of Human Trafficking is key to combating it

Increasing numbers of young Lao people migrate across the border to Thailand to find work, often putting themselves at risk of becoming victims of human trafficking. On 16 – 17 May, the Institute for Legal Support and Technical Assistance (ILSTA) started the training of 20 CLE students to become Human Trafficking Prevention Trainers. These young trainers will regularly reach out with awareness campaigns to the thousands of students at high schools and other universities around Vientiane to inform them about the specific dangers of labour migration and risks of human trafficking. The campaigns will be also introduced in social network activities and will reduce the vulnerability of the Lao youth to human trafficking.
