The Journey of a Brave Heart
An active Adolescent girls Group member of Daria Gram Panchayat Tuktuki has shown great presence of mind when she heard from the father of her friend Rehana Mali (name changed) that rehana has migrated with an acquaintance of the family to Bardhaman for job. Remembering her learning’s from the sensitization programmes conducted by KMWSC, she knew something was fishy. Taking the number of the man from Rehana’s father, Tuktuki called him. She played a trick and appealed to the man to also help her find a job.The man (a trafficker) in hope of a probable candidate, promised to connect with Tuktuki. Wasting no time she immediately called Childline and informed the local community leaders. The community stakeholders pressured the trafficker’s family to return her as soon as possible. Due to strong pressure from the community, & childline, the man was forced to return to Canning along with rehana. With everybody’s help Rehana was brought back to her parents.Later on Rehana revealed that she had been taken to Bihar and was in the process of being sold in a dance troupe. Now Tuktuki and Rehana are inseparable friends.
