Abstract
The study explores that Govt. and NGOs are directly involved in prevention activities. They do conduct prevention activities like mass-awareness raising, capacity building and income generating activities and so on. These activities definitely have impact on the society which is reflected in people’s growing concern about trafficking and in number of trafficking which if not reduced has not increased noticeably; though the impact is very low in comparison to urgency. Besides, it cannot be said that whatever achieved is possible only because of Govt. NGO and International Organization activities. They have to be appreciated for their pioneer role in anti-trafficking issue but the study reveals that effectiveness of their prevention activities is hampered by acute presence of push factors of trafficking, lack of collaboration, weak policy and legal framework and their own inefficiency. If comprehensive work plan and policy is taken Women and Children may get rid of the nightmare of trafficking.
