TALKAM Against Trafficking and Sexual Abuse (TATA) is a project implemented by Devatop Centre for Africa development in partnership with Accion Contra La Trata and funded by Ayuntamiento de Pamplona Spain. The project is being implemented in Edo State and Federal Capital Territory in 2021.
Under this project, over 100 stakeholders in Edo State and FCT were trained as anti-human trafficking advocates and were provided with resources to carry out community services (by sensitizing community members about combating human trafficking and sexual abuse).
The training has stimulated and motivated the participants to be at the forefront of combating human trafficking in their communities, and many of them have carried out awareness in markets, churches, mosques, schools, etc.
Here, we are featuring and celebrating four (4) women who carried out sensitizations in their communities in Edo State.
- OSAGIATOR PRECIOUS carried out sensitization against the ills of human trafficking, gender based violence and child abuse at Delight Lecture house, Upper Saponba Road, Ikpoba-Okha LGA of Edo State. She educated over 40 students on how they can protect women from human trafficking and sexual abuse.
- 2. IGBEDE ODION JENIFER carried out sensitization workshop at New Benin Invasion Academy in Oredo LGA of Edo state. She educated 31 students on prevention of human trafficking, gender based violence and child abuse. She had another workshop with the primary section pupils of Invasion Academy where she educated about 20 children.
3. ESTHER ORHUOZEE took out time to educate 20 youths on the need to “STOP HUMAN TRAFFICKING”, urging them to desist from supporting or being lured into trafficking either.
4. GIFT OSAS carried out sensitization against the ills of human trafficking, gender based violence and child abuse at Noble Assembly Church, Upper Saponba Road, Ikpoba-Okha LGA of Edo State. She was able to sensitize over 100 church members and encourage them to take action in protecting women from all forms of violence.
Devatop Centre for Africa Development has been at the forefront of the fight against human trafficking and other human right abuses and will always be. This is a wakeup call for everyone to get involved, in order to kick out this menace that has eaten deep into the fabric of our society. Together, we can end human trafficking.
