About the Model

Hummingbird and six field-based Partners in West Bengal are developing a Prevention of Trafficking Model comprising four distinct yet mutually supportive pillars. Through a series of deliberations and workshops, Hummingbird and its Partners have identified three programmatic pillars that form the foundation of the Model, which Partners are implementing as of January 2017. Through the initial project cycle, Hummingbird’s Partners are developing programmatic content and training programmes around these three pillars, building evidence of good practice, and analysing implementation effectiveness in a rapid manner that promotes adaptability and responsiveness.

The three programmatic pillars are:

    1. The Collectivisation of Children and Youth
    2. Forming and Strengthening Community-based Institutions
    3. Access to Right and Entitlements

In addition to these programmatic pillars, Hummingbird believes it must also invest in the capacity of its Partners. Partner organisations and their staff must maintain a deep understanding of the communities where they work and the issue of human trafficking, and build a strong working knowledge of government processes, programmatic developments and MEL systems. To ensure they can fully meet these demands, Hummingbird has identified Investing in Organisational Capacity as the important final pillar of its Model.
