The event is dedicated to the empowerment of survivors of human trafficking in India and will take place in the Edmund Dune Hall of Abbaye de Neumünster (neimënster). It will highlight the leadership of survivors and their economic reintegration. The Grand Duchess of Luxembourg will attend the MUKTI evening (which means “freedom” in Hindi).
A delegation of five adult survivors from India and Nepal will share their journeys to empowerment. ECPAT emphasised its goal to ensure the safety and absolute consent of participants to guarantee a respectful and favourable environment for exchange.
