Resilient Community Project
In-keeping with our mission to create impactful change within communities, APPL Foundation undertakes work to empower the communities with health and safety, to bring about this change. A serious issue faced by local communities in North East is trafficking and abuse. Resilient Community Project is aimed at combatting the vulnerability of children in the Tea Gardens of Udalguri and Sonitpur Districts, to abuse and trafficking.
The project also seeks to address the lack of skills, knowledge, resources and mechanisms within families and communities that would enable them to protect their children and to provide adequate support to children who become victims. We conduct regular community awareness campaigns on healthcare and sanitation, domestic violence against women, trafficking of women and children, the need for child protection and the importance of literacy. Besides this to prevent trafficking Active Community against Trafficking (ACT) group has been established. Through the initiative safe migration is facilitated by setting up of Migration Facilitating Unit (MFU).
