SOLICITATION FOR G/TIP-MANAGED FY 2008 ESF AND INCLE FUNDS

REF: State 161293

1. Embassy Zagreb has received one proposal for funding from FY 2008
INCLE and ESF appropriations. Per instruction in REFTEL the full
proposal will be forwarded via separate email. Post believes the
submitted proposal will help Croatia move towards Tier One status by
addressing one of the three key components of Croatia's TIP Action
Plan: the implementation of a demand reduction campaign.

2. A. Name of the applicant: Open Media Group

B. Requested funding amount: $129,759
The Government of Croatia Office for Human Rights is willing to
cost-share in funding this project if the full amount of the grant
cannot be approved. The GOC's letter of intent will be submitted
with the grant application.

C. Project Title: Recognize Victims - Save Lives

D. Project duration: One Year

E. Proposal Abstract:
The project "DETECT VICTIMS - SAVE LIVES" targets the men that use
the services of prostitutes with the goal of detecting and saving
victims of trafficking. The project explores new ways of finding
victims of trafficking and recruiting new allies, where the
legislative framework, law enforcement and the civil society cannot
reach. The project will be implemented in co-operation with the
Government of Croatia Office for Human Rights, which will co-finance
the project and provide other support. The project will last 12
months.
The project objectives are:
- raising awareness among clients of prostitution that trafficking
exists and that certain numbers of women and girls in prostitution
are trafficked;
- showing the signs of trafficking that the clients can recognize;
- raising compassion of the clients with the victims of trafficking
by showing the miserable conditions they live in;
- encouraging the clients of prostitutes to report their suspicions
regarding trafficking by calling an anonymous hotline.
The first three objectives will be achieved through a media campaign
- TV clips broadcasted on television and strategically placed
billboards by the roads. The fourth objective will be achieved
through providing the advertisements of an anonymous hotline number
where the men can report their suspicions. The success of the
campaign will be measured with number of calls to the hotline during
the campaign and by the visibility and recognition of the campaign
based on the feedback of the viewers that will be explored by a
research agency.
