The Transition Home for Migrant Girls in Trinidad and Tobago gets support from the United States Agency for International Development and the International Organization for Migration Port of Spain Office.
On Tuesday, IOM POS provided fifteen laptops and other vocational items valued at approximately US$10,000.00 to the Gender and Child Affairs Division, which oversees the Transition Home for Migrant Girls, which house victims of trafficking.
This handover marked the commencement of a wider outfitting and equipping activity under the Heal, Empower Rise Counter Trafficking in Persons Project, which is funded by the USAID.
Minister with responsibility for Gender and Child Affairs, Ayanna Webster-Roy, received the donation on behalf of the Transition Home.
With a total budget of US$950,000.00, the HER CTIP Project will deliver both in-person and online learning and livelihood training to young Victims of Trafficking under 18 years of age.
These services will be offered in various facilities across Trinidad and Tobago, ensuring survivors receive the necessary tools to rebuild their lives.
