Enhanced Capacity and Coordination to Combat TIP

We work to reduce trafficking in persons in Malawi.

The Enhanced Capacity and Coordination to Combat TIP project works to strengthen the response to trafficking in persons in Malawi. This is done through three priority activities.

  1. Support and strengthen coordination at the national and regional levels of anti-trafficking actors. This includes individuals working for the government and civil society organizations.
  2. Train and support front-line officials to proactively screen, identity, refer and protect victims of trafficking, utilizing national referral systems.
  3. Work in partnership with communities to co-design campaigns to increase the understanding and responsibility to identify, prevent and report instances of trafficking.

In addition, there will be enhanced survivor support systems, and national level policies and programming will be refined to streamline the relationship between the Government of Malawi and local organizations.

The project will be implemented in Lilongwe, Mwanza and Mulanje over the course of three years. It is funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons at $2 million.
