TRAINED TALKAM HUMAN RIGHTS ADVOCATES CARRYOUT AWARENESS CAMPAIGN IN EDO STATE (PART 2)

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 fore-front 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) trainees who carried out
sensitizations in their communities in Edo State.

  1. Apostle G.O Osayande Asibor sensitized over 30 persons of Uwelu community in Egor LGA of Edo State on the danger of human trafficking, Child abuse and gender-based violence.

3. Edwin Asibor held sensitization on human trafficking and unsafe migration at Community Secondary school Iguoriakhi in Edo State. He enlightened the students that traffickers prey on even young people like them hence their need to be aware. Over 200 students were reached during this sensitization

4. Julie Osunde sensitized Okhunwn Community School in Ovia North-East Local government area of Edo State. She enlightened about 200 teachers and students on human trafficking, gender-based violence and child abuse.
