Advocacy Program to Combat Trafficking in Women and Children at the local, national and regional level with the financial assistance of The Asia Foundation was initiated from March 1997 to February 1998. CWCS successfully launched Traffic Watch Bangladesh (TWB) – a network of national and grassroots level organizations to combat trafficking in women and children at the national level.
Campaigns and advocacy programs to combat trafficking with local government agencies, NGOs, community leaders, police, journalists, teachers, doctors, lawyers, parents, guardians, adolescents, children and particularly with the community people at the grassroots level were undertaken in partnership with the TWB network members. The programs were mainly awareness raising workshops at thana level with community people, doctors, teachers, journalists, political leaders, religious leaders and law enforcing agencies throughout Bangladesh, especially in the traffic prone areas of the bordering districts namely Jessore, Satkhira, Rajshahi, Chapai Nawabganj, Comilla and Dinajpur.
