E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PREL PGOV RW
SUBJECT: PROPOSAL FOR G/TIP-MANAGED FY 2008 ESF AND INCLE
FUNDS

REF: 07 SECSTATE 161287

1. Post requests FY 2008 ESF and INCLE funding for the
baseline assessment project summarized below.

A. Applicant name: Post is in the process of determining
which NGO will be most capable of conducting such a baseline
assessment. KURET, a local NGO, has done a recent and quite
excellent study of child labor in Rwanda, and would be a
natural fit for this sort of program; we are exploring their
interest and other options.

B. Requested funding amount: $200,000, 100 percent federal
share.

C. Project title: Trafficking Assessment and Strategic Policy
Development

D. Project duration: Twelve months

E. Proposal abstract: Rwanda is currently ranked as a Tier 2
trafficking country. One of the greatest challenges facing
the Government of Rwanda (GOR) as it attempts to combat
trafficking is a lack of resources, including reliable
statistics. Trafficking is not perceived as a major problem
here. The efforts the GOR devotes to its elimination compete
with other key national priorities. We propose that a
baseline assessment of the extent and character of
trafficking in Rwanda be undertaken, and that the results be
utilized to develop a national anti-trafficking strategy.

The assessment's results will be shared with the GOR and
other stakeholders (including the police, local government,
members of civil society and NGOs) through a series of
workshops that lead to the development and implementation of
an anti-trafficking strategy. This project will increase the
capacity of the Rwandan government to understand the scope
and nature of trafficking and to combat it -- be it through
tailored services for trafficking victims, increased police
training, or other prevention and treatment programs.
