Policy Advocacy And Awareness

Advocacy is one role that nonprofits may fill to bring together individuals who share a common concern for social justice in order to encourage social change and increase the accessibility of resources (Salamon, Hems, & Chinnock, 2000). Thus CHTEA endeavors to engage with the three levels of the government: the Executive, the Judiciary, and the legislature. The monitoring and review of Acts of parliament associated with counter-human trafficking is a priority. CHTEA engages with appropriate ministerial leadership and heads of departments in order to bring to the forefront issues and matters that concern the prudence of implementing policy. CHTEA also promotes sharing of  case studies to offer lessons and provide better insights into the evolving and ever-changing tactics of traffickers, hence providing the need for innovative interventions

A world free from human exploitation and trafficking and prosecution of the perpetrators.

To create a trafficking-free environment through advocacy, lobbying and reintegration, and rehabilitation of human trafficking victims.

CHTEA seeks to redefine counter Trafficking in Persons’ (TIP) strategies through promotion of enhanced coordination, capabilities, skills, exposure, research and documentation; while at the same time seeking to offer holistic solutions to victims’ plight and design an arresting intervention for the perpetrators and/or traffickers. Working collaboratively with Government agencies, CHTEA seeks to advocate, train, advice and prepare policy briefs for sub-regional government policy makers as it may apply appropriately in an effort to create a synergized approach towards Trafficking in Persons and other transnational organized crimes.
