Talitha Kum Training Manual
For Women Religious Active in the Prevention of Human Trafficking and Assisting its Victims
This document is intended to serve as one of the instruments for women religious who are active, or willing to become active, in counter-trafficking1 efforts associated with preventative activities and victim assistance. Human trafficking is a recent variation of the old phenomenon of human exploitation, associated today with the process of globalization of the world economy. The geopolitical transformations of the last two decades deeply reshaped both the political and economic balance and favoured the increase of internal and international migration flows, either voluntary or forced (these last due to armed conflicts or to natural or man made environmental disasters).
IN THE WORLD
Talitha Kum Networks are active in the 5 continents coordinating the anti-trafficking efforts of 50 inter-congregational networks organized at the national-local level and 10 networks that include the joint coordination of several countries at the regional level.
