Talitha Kum Declaration
Networking Against Human Trafficking
Talitha Kum is an international network of Consecrated Life against trafficking in persons. ACRATH is a member of the Talitha Kum network. Working as a network facilitates collaboration and the interchange of information between consecrated men and women in 70 countries. Talita Kum is an expression that is found in the Gospel of Mark (5, 41). The words, translated from the Aramaic mean “Little Girl, I say to you, arise.” In January 2016 the second international coordination meeting of Talitha Kum was convened by the International Union of Superiors General, through the coordinator of the Talitha Kum project, Sr. Gabriella Bottani, SMC. The aim of the meeting was to define the priorities of Talitha Kum and to formulate a strategic plan for the three years 2016-2018. The Talitha Kum declaration can be accessed here.
