Talitha Kum community ambassadors against Human Trafficking in Indonesia
Since 2017 the Irish Government has been proud to support the Talitha Kum anti-trafficking network in its fight against trafficking and slavery in many corners of the world.
In 2019 the funding was used for a project in Indonesia which worked on training and organising the Christian communities in promoting activities of prevention and social rehabilitation of survivors of trafficking throughout the country. .
A feature of the activities was the identification in the communities of anti-human trafficking 'ambassadors'. These ambassadors are women, men and young people. Talitha Kum can identify community leaders to be trained, and to support them as anti-trafficking ambassadors in their villages and communities. They come from remote villages, where unscrupulous agents recruit people illegally. In the villages, the ambassadors will raise awareness on human trafficking.

In May the Irish Government announced a further €10,000 funding for a new Talitha Kum project in 2020.
