Facts & Figures
About the Cambodia Countering Trafficking-In-Persons Program
Winrock International and its partners, International Justice Mission (IJM) and Open Institute (OI), will advance human rights by improving systems to Counter Trafficking-in-Persons (CTIP) in Cambodia through a holistic, multi-pronged, four-year program that bolsters the capacity of communities and government actors in coordination with private sector and development partners. Drawing on nearly 17 years of experience implementing counter-TIP programming around the world, Winrock’s approach will disrupt TIP patterns by building local capacity to prevent TIP, empowering and protecting migrants and at-risk populations, identifying victims, and supporting perpetrators’ prosecution. CTIP will create a path for Cambodia to graduate from the U.S. State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Report Tier 2 Watch List.
- Winrock’s strategy builds on best practices and lessons learned from implementing the current phase of CTIP in Cambodia, guided by three areas of focus:
CTIP will address root causes to prevent trafficking, offering diversified, climate-resilient livelihood pathways that reduce dependence on seasonal agriculture, and educating vulnerable individuals on safe migration, with emphasis on youth engagement and activism.
- A locally guided and oriented approach will create tailored solutions that respond to communities’ unique needs and build community safety nets to protect survivors and underserved populations and increase access to and quality of available services.
- CTIP will strengthen Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) efforts to counter TIP at the national and sub-national levels, providing technical assistance to address TIP Report recommendations such as increasing victim identification and resources, enforcing and monitoring policies, and enhancing prosecution.
CTIP Program Target Numbers:
- 100 communes in 9 target provinces develop and implement plans to prevent TIP and protect victims.
- 1,750 survivors and at-risk individuals secure long-term employment.
- 100 businesses commit to providing training and jobs for survivors and at-risk individuals.
- 2,000 TIP survivors receive holistic, community or shelter-based support services, including trauma informed care and legal assistance.
- Counter trafficking-in-persons mainstreamed into Cambodian National Police training programs.
