the 3 pillar approach

Operation Red Alert has developed a 3 pillar approach to preventing sex trafficking in India. The 3 pillars are based on 18 months of research.


What is the issue?

Every few minutes a girl is sold into sex slavery. The average age of these girls is 12. Only 1% of them are ever rescued. The road to rehabilitation, if she is rescued, is extremely difficult. Yet, there are very few NGOs working to prevent this from happening.

Our 3-Pillar approach

Operation Red Alert has developed a 3 Pillar approach to prevent the trafficking of girls. Our aim is to stop trafficking before it reaches families and steals girls’ lives.

Expose by Mass Media Campaign

The number one barrier to ending human trafficking is awareness. The general Indian public is still largely unaware that trafficking exists, let alone that India has disproportionately more slaves than any other country in the world. We aim to see trafficking become something every Indian is committed to ending. If we are on #RedAlert, India's daughters will be safe.

Empower by National Helpline

Prior to our helpline, there was no exclusive, national helpline for sex trafficking. With 95 million mobile phones in the country this is an opportunity to put the power to take action in the hands of those who need it most. The helpline is based on a coalition effort of Operation Red Alert's partner NGOs, each providing different services to different geographic zones in India.

Eradicate by Grassroots Education

Preventing trafficking is impossible if we do not educate the families and villages that traffickers are targeting. In India, most families have no idea that their girls are being taken and sold into sexual exploitation. Most NGO's efforts are spent in rescue and rehabilitation of trafficked girls. The Operation Red Alert Safe Village Toolkit is reaching at risk villages around India, teaching families how to keep their daughters safe.
