Impulse NGO Network (INGON) a non-profit organisation has been working in the field of addressing cross-border human trafficking and unsafe migration in South East Asia for over 31 years, with its headquarters in Shillong, Meghalaya.

The Impulse Model

The organisation has created the award-winning, internationally-acknowledged Impulse Model, which is a multi-sector approach to address all issues surrounding human trafficking and unsafe migration.

Before the invention of the Impulse Model, there was no other workable system in order to combat cross Border human trafficking in the north-eastern states in a holistic network approach. The Impulse Model has been replicated in a range of social and cultural contexts to ensure that all human trafficking cases are reported managed and transmitted to the network of stakeholders.

This eventually led to the creation of the globally-acclaimed Impulse Model under the 12 pillars:

6Ps: Partnership, Prevention, Protection, Policing, Press, Prosecution, and 

6Rs: Reporting, Rescue, Rehabilitation, Repatriation, Re-integration, Restitution 

Impulse Case Management Centre (ICMC)

The ICMC serves as a portal interface between stakeholders and effective anti Trafficking practices by enhancing and streamlining the way we manage and track cases of human trafficking, it also further strengthened the anti-human trafficking network through increased and continuous communication.

As technologies advance rapidly, alongside increased security risk, including, cybercrime, online recruitment of victims and the proliferation. Impulse Case Management Centre addresses the cases of human trafficking through a single-window platform. 

Partnerships are the core of the Impulse Model. INGON recognised that the fight against human trafficking is not a one-person job and that our partnership with various stakeholders under the Impulse Model has to be organised and coordinated. It has resulted in overall increased reliability and efficiency of responses to the human trafficking network through increased and continues communication 

Impulse NGO Networks operates in eight states of the North East (Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Assam, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim including North Bengal, and it has scaled to replicate in neighbouring countries of Myanmar, Bangladesh and Nepal for more than eight years.
