Summary

Cameroon is a source, transit, and destination country for young women and children who are subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking. GLOWA is an NGO created by human trafficking survivors who are committed to fighting against trafficking in persons by helping victims to engage in a "learning-by-doing" programme which entails sewing lessons, psychological support, and school classes to help them heal their traumas and gain the skills needed to build a brighter future.

Challenge

As stated in the 2020 Trafficking in Persons Report on Cameroon, human traffickers are exploiting homeless children and adolescents from economically disadvantaged families into sex trafficking and forced labour. Traffickers often use the promise of education or a better life in urban areas to lure rural parents into entrusting their children to them. The phenomenon is caused by large numbers of IDPs, poor economic and educational conditions, and a lack of police and judicial presence.

Solution

The envisaged program will use "learning-by-doing" modules that will cover three areas: sewing lessons and workshops, psychological support, and school classes in order for victims to achieve a basic/intermediate level of education. The programme will allow victims to gain marketable skills, heal their traumas, and raise awareness, thereby preventing other potential victims from being trafficked.

Long-Term Impact

The aim of the project is to educate young women and other potential victims, teach them marketable skills that they can use to rise out of poverty, and train them to overcome their traumas, ultimately helping them build a more prosperous future for their families and themselves. In the long run, the envisaged program aims to build a stronger and closer community of survivors that can break the cycle of human trafficking.
