Brief Description

Information and education campaigns were conducted throughout 2017 to increase the public’s awareness of human trafficking. The government, in conjunction with non-governmental organizations (NGOs), conducted 10 public awareness campaigns, which focused on both trafficking victims and on the demand for trafficking. These included spots on a local radio station, a mock UN Session during which students discussed human trafficking awareness and presentations at various secondary schools. Additionally, participants in the training by the Ministry of Education worked with a local NGO, Women of Purpose, to create a targeted outreach radio campaign focusing on prevention and awareness to marginalised communities.
