Arming Women in the Quest to Prevent Trafficking: A Case Study on Sex Trafficking Prevention, part 1

In anti-trafficking circles, "Prevention" is often referred to as "the third P" or "the forgotten P" due to the fact that most anti-trafficking efforts focus on "Prosecution" (of traffickers) and "Protection" (of trafficking victims and survivors). Street Business School (SBS), an organization dedicated to preventing trafficking, asks an important question. This question is: "what if we tap into the power and potential" of vulnerable women and girls before they fall prey to traffickers?

SBS focuses on bringing what they call "entrepreneurial education" to these women and girls. They become "armed" with the skills to take care of themselves by earning an income. In order to prove the efficacy of this model, SBS is conducting a long-term case study on their programs. They will be publishing them in a series of blog posts, available on this website.
