Talitha Kum is an international network of Consecrated Life against trafficking in persons. Founded in 2009, Talitha Kum arose from the shared desire to coordinate and strengthen the already existing activities against trafficking undertaken by consecrated men and women in 70 countries, on five continents.
Talitha Kum is a project of the International Union of Superiors general (UISG), in collaboration with the Union of Superiors General (USG) worldwide.

More than 300 students gathered to hear about the threats of human trafficking and how best to protect themselves from such a threat, as Religious members of Talitha Kum took time to educate the youth about human trafficking.
In India, 25 congregations participate in the Talitha Kum network. With such a network, it is expected that the collective strength in numbers will have a greater impact on preventing human trafficking than heretofore, when congregations worked individually.
