WHAT?

Human Trafficking is the recruitment or movement of persons, through threat or force, deception or coercion for the purpose of exploitation.


HOW?

People are tricked into situations where they are bought, sold, abused, and exploited in many different ways: sexual exploitation, forced labour, street crime, domestic servitude or even the sale of organs and human sacrifice. Trafficking affects every continent and every country. Traffickers and their victims often come from the same place, speak the same language or have the same ethnic background as their victims. Such commonalities help traffickers generate trust to carry out the crime.


WHY?

People are trafficked primarily for financial gain. Human trafficking is a multi-billion dollar industry -  it is a high-profit, low-risk crime.

Spot the signs

Understanding the signs to look out for could help the most vulnerable people within your community. A person could be a victim of trafficking if he/she:

  • is fearful, anxious, depressed, submissive, tense, nervous or paranoid
  • avoids eye contact
  • appears malnourished
  • shows signs of physical or sexual abuse, physical restraint, confinement or torture
  • has few or no personal possessions
  • has numerous inconsistencies in his or her stories
  • is not allowed to speak for themselves

If you recognise some of these signs, it is essential that you share what you’ve seen with the relevant authorities.

Dear friends and patrons,As 2022 draws to a close, I would like for us to look back at a year that heralded in new directions for Oasis India: year one of the 5-year strategic plan of new partnerships, a year of social enterprise, and organisational sustainability.While it was certainly challenging in many ways, it also showed how strong our commitment to the vision and mission are as an organisation – be it as board members, supporters, members of senior management, the national leadership team, or project staff.We can take pride in the fact that we resumed the annual Mukthi Bike Challenge this year, launched Oasis India’s 5-year strategic plan for 2022–2027, and started a new integrated community empowerment project in Assam—Oasis Academy Guwahati and Football for Life (FFL). We also initiated potential partnership discussions with PCI-Mizoram for anti-human trafficking and Thrive for Good under food security, etc. These great achievements lays the foundation for our work in the upcoming new year.There were notable life-changing stories of beneficiaries in each of Oasis India’s hubs and the many other challenges we overcame as a team. Successes achieved in a time when we were forced to adapt to very adverse circumstances So, I want to thank all our staff for the hard work and commitment they have shown over the past year. Our combined strength is what makes us flourish as an organisation.Thank you, our supporters, for walking this journey of growth and development hand in hand with us. As you celebrate Christmas with friends and family, I hope you will look back on the year with the same sense of accomplishment and joy that we all feel at Oasis India.I wish you and your family a happy Christmas season and a prosperous 2023! Best regards,Mangneo LhungdimExecutive Director,Oasis India
