Combating Human Trafficking in Paraguay
Ñande Ko’ẽ (“Our Sunrise” in Guaraní), a project funded by the U.S. Department of State (USDOS) Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (TIP), aims to address human trafficking, with an emphasis on sex and labor trafficking, in Paraguay.
The goal of Ñande Ko’ẽ is to strengthen Paraguay’s capacity to prevent and process cases of human trafficking and protect its victims. The project aims to strengthen local and national networks to combat trafficking, improve comprehensive services available to victims, and build state institutional capacity to address the issue of trafficking. The project’s comprehensive and dynamic approach to combatting human trafficking focuses on building the capacity of civil society organizations and the public and private sectors to prevent and prosecute cases and protect children and adult victims.
Partners and the allied implementing sub-awardee, Grupo Luna Nueva (GLN), a leading grassroots organization working against child sexual exploitation in Paraguay, have established a strong relationship with key stakeholders that will assist in the implementation of this project. Within a 36-month period, Ñande Ko’ẽ will impact Paraguay at both the national and regional level, with specific attention to the regions of Caaguazú and Itapúa.
