Theatre teaches about threats of trafficking in person

Hundreds of Istaravshan city residents learned about threats of trafficking in persons’ through a mobile theatrical show performed by known and honored actor of the Republic of Tajikistan, Alovuddin Abdulloev and his team on 28 March 2017.

The series of mobile theatrical performances were organized under the USAID Dignity and Rights Project, which is implemented by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Tajikistan and is made possible by the American people through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).


The performances taught audience about the threat of human trafficking by showing real problems and the current forms of trafficking in persons, as well as how to keep themselves and their families safe from traffickers. Although the stories were fictional and any similarity with real life is purely coincidental, the plays showed what happens to victims of trafficking and what could happen to anyone who is not cautious.

The performances especially targeted youth and women, as they are particularly vulnerable to trafficking and exploitation because they often do not have enough information on working and living conditions and laws in other countries and cities, as well as about own rights and how to defend themselves legally.

Theatrical performances organized by IOM Tajikistan in different cities and districts of the country were highly welcomed by regional governments and communities, generating much interest.
