PROJECT 1

In a project funded by CISU, HopeNow is working together with the NGO HAART, who work to combat human trafficking in Kenya. Work with HAART started back in 2014 and the funding HopeNow has received (2015 – 2017) is to continue the collaboration and consolidate the partnership. The aim of the project is to engage in targeted work with the local authorities in Kenya, develop information and awareness campaigns in local communities and build capacity among the people working in this field in Kenya. There is also a focus on how we can rehabilitate and empower individuals who are victims of traffickingsuch that they are in a position to gain more control over their situation. This summer, Masters student Jane Lind will conduct an anthropological examination of the collaborative project. HopeNow is providing Jane Lind with contacts in Kenya and supervision with her academic work.

We are very happy for the continual collaboration with HAART, who have been instrumental in campaigning against human trafficking in Kenya and improved the lives of victims of trafficking in the country.

 

PROJECT 2

The Department for Social Affairs under the Ministry for Children and Social Affairs are funding a 3-year project (2015 – 2018) called OUTREACH. As the title suggests this funding is to continue to execute and develop our outreach activities. HopeNow is committed to collecting and sharing raw data with the Center Against Human Trafficking (Center Mod Menneskehandel – CMM) on the possibly and identified trafficked persons we engage with, and we shall deliver a more detailed report of our findings in 2018. In conjunction with this project we also meet with partner organisations (CMM, Reden International, ProVest and the Danish Red Cross) to share our experiences and gain nuanced knowledge of the field four times a year.

 

PROJECT 3

 HopeNow in collaboration with COWI is carrying out a 3-year outreach project (2016 Р2018) funded by the Department for Equality at the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The project focuses on human trafficking and escort and private or discreet prostitution. HopeNow is also exploring the use of the internet in these areas of prostitution and is addressing the challenges at the national level. This has required us to develop new methods to reach this hidden group of women.

As well as using technical solutions such as web scraping, in our outreach work we are using a peer group worker, and also a cultural mediator who has 13 years experience of providing social services to trafficked people, both of whom have ethnic origins in Africa. Through this project, HopeNow is organically developing more fruitful cooperative practices and building bridges between our partner organisations. In autumn/winter 2017, we shall hold a small conference in order to further share and disseminate knowledge regarding our methods and approaches.
