In 2021, we will continue advancing our anti-trafficking work by leveraging those who have the greatest power to end this atrocity, by strategically expanding our relationships with key ambassadors, diplomats, members of parliament and international organizations representing 193 nations at the United Nations. Including the following activities:
Training government leaders and civil society organizations how to eliminate legislation, policies and laws that hinder the ability of police/prosecutors/judges to prosecute and convict pedophiles/human traffickers and their accomplices, while freeing more victims - as effective laws and their uncompromising enforcement play an irreplaceable role in abolishing human trafficking.
Reforming national justice systems by recommending new legislation and/or eliminating existing legislation that strengthens the justice system to increase human trafficking convictions. Legal reform plays a vital role in abolishing human trafficking;
Training government lawmakers, law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, and civil society organizations how to create local citizen-based initiatives that will help law enforcement and prosecutors convict more pedophiles/human traffickers and their accomplices.
We will also continue to spread awareness about slavery prevention in different villages. In January 2021, a Transformational Community Development (TCD) leader in DG Village, Kenya, was able to speak about the importance preventing human trafficking through awareness and education. There is an illiteracy problem in the community, which can cause a high risk of human trafficking. Now, women and men in the community are aware and able to see the warning signs of human trafficking.
We cannot do this alone. My hope is to build a committed team of 75 people willing to financially commit to partnering with us at the level of $1200 per year ($100 per month). This team will make it possible for us to advance our anti-trafficking work to the highest levels of influence to end human trafficking and victimization. As you may not know, our anti-trafficking advocacy work is 100% privately funded by generous partners like you.
