JVI’s Growing Justice Network

In order to combat human trafficking and improve access to justice and legal services for survivors, JVI is  developing a justice network in India and Nepal, linking local and global advocates to protect the vulnerable from abuse and oppression. JVI’s growing justice network consists of nonprofit organizations, businesses, and government officials. JVI equips and strengthens these organizations to fight injustice through human rights training, legal services, funding and access to other professionals. 

One recent example of equipping in action took place on December 19th, 2019 in Purnea, Bihar. Upon the request of the Labour Superintendent of Purnea, JVI conducted a training on bonded labour abolition for the district administration. A total of 181 government officials participated in the training including the District Magistrate, Deputy Development Commissioner and all Sub Divisional Magistrates. The training sessions covered forced labor slavery laws and   standard operating procedures for the delivery of rescue, prosecution, and aftercare services.

JVI believes that the pursuit of justice is the shared responsibility of all those with the ability to help. Partnership is at the heart of our work. By partnering, we combine greater skills, innovation and cultural understanding to design justice solutions that work.
