International is a nonprofit organization that works with people
in the United States and around the world to empower the
disadvantaged, increase economic opportunity, and sustain
natural resources. Winrock has been engaged in the fight against trafficking-in-persons for
over 12 years, having successfully implemented anti-trafficking programs around the world.
Actions to Combat Trafficking-in-Persons (ACT) Program (October 2008-September 2014):
Human trafficking takes several forms and has many faces. Its scope includes the exploitation of men, women and children into bonded or abusive labor or the commercial sex trade. Trafficking violates the human rights of its victims, damages lives, feeds corruption, exacts an economic toll on governments and taxpayers, and harms society at all levels.
The Six-year Actions for Combating Trafficking-in-Persons (ACT) Program, implemented by Winrock International, connects local and national government representatives, non-governmental organizations, and citizens and community leaders to spearhead an effort to prevent trafficking-in-persons, protect and reverse damages to survivors, prosecute crimes of perpetrators, and engage all layers of society as change agents in curbing trafficking. The ACT Program works collaboratively to:
- empower survivors of trafficking and those at-risk for trafficking;
- provide viable economic alternatives to unsafe internal and cross-border migration;
- expand public awareness and participation in prevention efforts and crime reduction;
- build the capacity of government institutions to identify and prosecute perpetrators; and
- eliminate social and gender biases that undermine basic human rights and help perpetuate trafficking.
