Going the distance to stop child trafficking: Local vigilance committees

In the fight against child trafficking in West Africa, local community volunteers are engaged in monitoring the wellbeing of children and mobilizing the communities to take action against trafficking. Since 2005, they have repatriated 430 children and more than 3,500 children have been re-enrolled in public school or vocational centres after being taken away from their homes for exploitative work.
