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 sex 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.
