HEARTLAND ALLIANCE INTERNATIONAL
Heartland Alliance International’s *Strengthening Services for Victims of Human Trafficking in the Lake Chad Basin” project will improve victim identification and comprehensive shelter-based services for victims of trafficking in the Lake Chad Basin Region. It will improve the capacity of governments, civil society, and communities to protect and provide comprehensive services for survivors of trafficking in Nigeria and Cameroon, particularly former child soldiers and women and girls trafficked by combatants for forced labor and/or sexual exploitation. The project will expand the impact of HAI’s research and pilot programming developed through the J/TIP-funded Protect, Shelter & Heal project, which developed replicable program models in Nigeria and Swaziland. The project builds the capacity of existing local partner institutions providing services to survivors of trafficking, including, but not limited to the Nigerian National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), the Federal and Borno State Ministries of Women’s Affairs and Social Development (MWASD), and other community and grassroots organizations and leaders. Capacity will be built using a community-based, survivor-centered approach to trauma-informed mental health, yielding lasting improvements in the well-being of heavily traumatized survivors of trafficking.
