PROPOSALS

REF: STATE 28157

1. Post proposes the following anti-trafficking
in persons projects in response to reftel:

A) Name of Applicant: Terre de Hommes Germany
Southern Africa Coordinating Office

B) Requested Funding: $558,180

C) Project Title: Combating Trafficking of
Children in Southern Africa (Regional project)

D) Project Duration: Two years

E) Proposal Abstract: The project seeks to ensure
the protection of children through coordinated
education and public awareness programs, capacity
building workshops, and the lobbying of decision-
makers in individual countries and regional blocs
to ensure child protection and counter the recent
increase in child trafficking in Angola, Malawi,
Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zimbabwe and
Zambia, as countries of origin and transit, as
well South Africa as a country of destination and
transit. The actions of the campaign will target
key risky areas where children are recruited and
in the places of transit namely major cities in
the coastal areas, poor rural areas, villages by
international borders mainly with South Africa.
The project includes a multiplier effect.

F) Post's comments: This is an ambitious proposal
but one that the organization is capable of
achieving, particularly in light of its numerous
partnerships with NGOs in the mentioned
countries. The budget is a bit high and, on a
technical note, the proposal did not include
resumes. However, post is very familiar with the
organization (particularly its coordinator),
which has a strong record conducting successful
anti-trafficking projects in Mozambique in recent
years. Post understands that the project would be
managed from Mozambique, where the NGO is based,
but will be implemented as a regional project in
the countries named above.

2. A) Name of Applicant: Rede CAME (Network
Against the Abuse of Minors)

B) Requested Funding: $472,217

C) Project Title: Preventing the Trafficking of
Children and Women in Mozambique

D) Project Duration: Two years

E) Proposal Abstract: Rede CAME intends to
reinforce cooperation between civil society and
the justice sector to create a more favorable
environment for combating trafficking in persons.
Red CAME also will utilize its large network of
NGO partners to continue to lobby for the passage
of a specific law against trafficking in persons
and will assist in disseminating the law by
producing a procedural guide for legal processing
of perpetrators of trafficking as well as
assistance to trafficking victims. Red CAME also
intends to focus on prevention by designing a
training manual for the police and border guards
and conducting train-the-trainer sessions to
ensure a multiplier effect. Finally, Red CAME
will utilize its partners to help shelter
trafficking victims and ensure they receive
psychological assistance and vocational training
for eventual social reintegration.

F) Post thoughts: Red CAME has an impressive
network of established partners to work with,
including a shelter for victims, women's rights
groups, judicial watchdogs, police groups, and
other anti-trafficking NGOS. This is a major
factor when considering the projects prospects
for success. Red CAME was also a major player
working with the government to draft a
comprehensive law on trafficking, and part of
this project is a follow-up: ensuring its passage
as well as country-wide dissemination. Red CAME

MAPUTO 00000464 002 OF 002


received DHRF funding in 2005 to disseminate
information on the child protection law and
received USAID funding in 2006 to contribute to
the draft trafficking in persons law. In both
cases post has been very impressed with the work
carried out by Red CAME.

Once upon a time, the Soviet Union was the nightmare threat for the entire Cold War era – and since then the US has cast the Taliban, al Qaeda, and Islamic State in the same demonic role. Iran is now the latest example…More
