Starting from 25th March, 2018, Shafiqur Rahman Khan alongwith dedicated volunteers, embarked on an 8000 km long march against bride trafficking (popularised on social media as #MABT2018) from Assam to Himachal Pradesh, to strengthen and power the movement against the rising trend of bride trafficking, by empowering local communities about the deceitful racket of traffickers and building working partnerships with other anti-trafficking units.
By funding this March, you are directly aiding the fight against bride trafficking on ground to secure and safeguard the human rights of our children and women.
The March is empowering anti-trafficking units and groups on ground with a dedicated ANTI TRAFFICKING HELPLINE NUMBER 011 300 102 11 to ensure that no roadblock faced by them goes unattended and unresolved.
The March will need all the help it can get to sustain until its ultimate destination in Shimla.
How your funds will be of great help:
The March is being carried out along a route traversing 10 Indian States from Karbi Anglong in Assam to Shimla in Himachal Pradesh and this is the route which is responsible for more than 60% trafficking happening in the country; including cross-border trafficking from Myanmar, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan. He needs all funds possible, to make it a huge success with maximum outreach and for this movement to also stand as a shining example of the true power of the people!
Shafiq has also organised a March before in the year 2012 and among many other stories the one that stands out goes like this:
Listening to the Marchers talking about the issue
Two mothers fall unconscious,
And it was found that their girls had been missing.
They had not even known how to ask for help!
And not even their neighbours had an inkling of it...
This is an experience from the march conducted in 2012. There are many such silent sufferers out there for lack of awareness and lack of voice or faith in anyone listening to them.
So do come forward unhesitatingly to help power the movement with encouraging funds and spreading the word so no one suffering injustice and abuse has to suffer in silence for lack of ears to listen or hearts, minds or arms to rescue and rehabilitate.
