This workshop aims to discuss strategies, approaches and activities that will foster a close relationship between stakeholders at both a national and sub-national level, in order to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of the implementation of this project.
100 participants are expected to attend the workshop including NCCT, PNCCT, the Provincial Department of Women’s Affairs, the Provincial Department of Labor and Vocational Training, the Provincial Department of Social Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation, NGO’s, journalists, and community representatives.
The Trans Border Migration Project is a three year project funded by the Spotlight InitiativethroughUN Women. The project aims to eradicate violence against Women (VAW), and prevent risky migration and human trafficking, all whilst improving protection of the rights of migrant workers. The targeted groups are vulnerable women, men, boys and girls who are at risk of unsafe migration and could potentially be susceptible to trafficking in Kompong Speu province, Sihanoukville province, and Thailand.
Through a holistic approach CARE expects to achieve two main results:
1. Networking Support: Community based groups and peer groups within targeted areas in Cambodia and Thailand have networking opportunities to exchange information and support each other.
2. Empowerment: Community members in targeted provinces are empowered to make informed choices on migration and can prevent unsafe migration and human trafficking.
