Nigeria is a source, transit, and destination country for women and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking, and a source country for men subjected to forced labor. In 2015, a foreign government reported that with the exception of internal trafficking within the EU, Nigerian nationals are the most common trafficking victims in the EU.
Our work in Nigeria takes a whole system approach.
Through partnerships with government and NGO organisations on the ground, we work with survivors and young people at risk of human trafficking to gain critical skills and access to reduce their vulnerability. We also partner with community organisations and influencers to raise awareness, change social norms and strengthen institutional capacity.
Our work in Cameroon takes a grassroots level approach with a focus on prevention and protection of vulnerable women and children including internally displaced persons.
We work with the Survivors Network in Cameroon to empower women, children and community groups critical skills, strategies and resources to reduce their vulnerability. We use community advocates to influence social norms, raise awareness, and build community capacity.
