Once involved they cannot come out of the clutches of Traffickers.They are transported to different places for making money.The news of trafficking continued from many years, though Police are trying their best to combat it, leaked in the Social Media recently.The religious places are the targets for the Traffickers , as there will be floating population from different regions coming to those areas. In the situation,   Tharuni along with the British Deputy High Commission and the Rachakonda Police coordinated a Project to help people in Yadadri and Bhuvanagiri towns to fight against human trafficking.

In Bhongir, on 18th September 2018, there was a workshop conducted  for the She Teams.

They were taught about Human Trafficking menace and also trained in how to notice when Human Trafficking takes place. These people were given the responsibility in helping police in stopping human trafficking and if they are able to do so then an award will be  given to them by Rachokonda police.
