We are excited to announce our first updates from our expansion into the East and South-Eastern Africa regions this year, with the appointment of Ms. Shukri Hussein as Africa Regional General Manager. In the past months, we continued to build relationships with the Anti Trafficking Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Malawi, introducing our programs to CSOs/NGOs and other stakeholders, with a focus on Freedom Collaborative and the Victim Case Management System (VCMS).
We are pleased to announce ongoing partnerships on Freedom Collaborative with some Kenyan, Ugandan and Malawian CSOs and Anti Trafficking Networks. We look forward to forming new partnerships in the various countries, as well as collectively engaging in discussions on how Freedom Collaborative can support in facilitating more national and regional collaboration and cooperation among anti-trafficking CSOs and stakeholders, which can lead to personalized interactions that can help build trust.
We are also eager to continue discussions on how data capture can aid in developing a common understanding of human trafficking in this region that can help frontline CSOs in designing evidence-based interventions.
