Our partners will work collaboratively with two other organisations to deliver a trafficking, safe migration, and child marriage awareness program and training for trainers across three islands. They will target local youth, school teachers and administrators, community activists and local medical practitioners. Trainers will use the MAWL method – Model, Assist, Watch, Leave – firstly identifying potential trainers and modelling the training, then returning to assist and watch the trainers as they step out on their own, ensuring quality training and adherence to the curriculum.
Why support this:
Our partners have strong linkages with international experts in the field as well as Indonesians with knowledge and insight into local institutions, agencies and cultural sensitivities. Coalition strengthening is crucial for a coordinated and effective anti-trafficking offence and the local Bali model is proving effective for establishing a national anti-trafficking taskforce. Our partners are driven by the needs and requests of grass- root Indonesian organisations who want access to comprehensive and reputable training curricula.
Budget: Total budget required for one year is $21,000.
Bali is one of the more prosperous islands in Indonesia but tourism has increased the vulnerability of the poor to trafficking. According to the Global Slavery Index there are 1,220,000 Indonesians enslaved today. Families are particularly vulnerable and the Women’s Institute in Java reports that 43% of those exploited in Indonesia’s sex industries are minors. A significant percentage of those children are found in Bali. Local anti-trafficking organisations working for the prevention, rescue and restoration of trafficked children in Bali and throughout Indonesia have been constrained by the lack of quality, affordable resources and training programs available in Indonesian and tailored specifically to their needs. There is also a need to strengthen and facilitate relationships between the organisations to enhance information sharing and to better coordinate anti-trafficking efforts.
