The Kalinga Fellowship

Save the Date: 9 – 13 December 2019
Vishwa Yuvak Kendra, New Delhi, India

The Kalinga Fellowship is a global programme that brings together the most progressive leaders from business, government and civil society to facilitate a breakthrough in thinking and strategy to answer the question:

How can the senior leaders of the government, business sector and civil society come together to combat trafficking of women and children globally?

Target 5.2 of #SDG-5 on Gender Equality specifically addresses the issue of trafficking and calls for countries to,“Eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls in the public and private spheres, including trafficking and sexual and other types of exploitation.”

This goal conceives trafficking and exploitation as a form of gender discrimination and violence against women.
