As we near the end of the second year of the pandemic, we at Shield are reflecting on its effects on the Anti-Human Trafficking field and how it has caused us to shift our methods of operation. Reports from the last two years have shown an increase in the number of people considered to be […]

I first met Champei* (name changed to protect her identity and dignity) in February in 2018. Shield had been requested by a local organisation to conduct an investigation in to several street pimps who had been trafficking minors and selling them to foreigners. We were given the location of these street pimps and soon set

It feels like forever since our plans were laid down for five simultaneous raids that were set for February. Unfortunately Coronavirus hit and just as we were scheduled to be in the field both the host countries and the deploying countries began closing borders. Our partners on the ground have continued to work around the

Like most of the world, we are in lockdown—and Shield of the Children’s investigative operations are on hold as a result of the pandemic. Our mission, however, hasn’t changed. We are committed to the children of South-East Asia, and will resume our normal operations when we are able. Behind the scenes, we are as busy

We’ve been quite busy and are looking down the barrel of far more opportunities than we could possibly be involved in due to manpower, time, and finance.  Since

It’s hard to believe it’s already the end of June! This year we’ve already conducted an operation in South-East Asia, targeting several paedophiles exploiting two groups of street children in-country. One of these men has been living in that very city for over 9 years.  We began this operation in response to a request from

It was a busy year for us at Shield. We partnered with local non-government organisations in South-East Asia, in training and in operations. We successfully took down several traffickers and rescued 9 in an 8 month operation in collaboration with 3 other organisations working in the space.  We trained and equipped local non-government organisations in

Now, why would we title this post ‘Successful Operation’? Well, that’s because we tied up an operation last month that we’d been working on since March this year. We managed to get all of our targets arrested and local Law Enforcement rescued 9 out of 10 girls in the raid.  Why is it successful when
