Our Response

World Vision’s strategy encompasses what is known as the 4Ps approach:

  • Prevention

Reducing vulnerability through education in communities, and providing shelter and care for the victims

  • Protection

Re-integrating rescued victims into their community after they are repatriated, including protecting them from threats, violence, abuse, and providing physical and psychological care

  • Prosecution

Focusing on areas of law enforcement towards human trafficking profiteers

  • Policy

Holding the other 3Ps together, national policies are influenced by a country’s international obligations, national legislation, bilateral agreements, and most importantly, public opinion and lobbying
