Freedom Fund is making funding available in Ethiopia under its Safer Migration Program to prevent exploitation and human trafficking of girls and women going to the Middle East for domestic work.
The Safer Migration Program aims at disrupting the systems that sustain the domestic servitude of women and girls from Ethiopia in the Middle East, by
- Building community understanding and practice of safer migration
- Improving the functioning of the migration system in Ethiopia i.e. support government responses, promoting fair and transparent recruitment practices, and strengthening law enforcement actions
- Strengthening the capacity of civil society actors, individually and collectively to influence and hold the government accountable
- Improving access to and quality of reintegration services for returnees.
Freedom Fund will disburse USD1.3 million over 25 months between March 2021 and March 2023 to eight organisations maximum, in support of the delivery of its program strategy. Opportunities for additional funding may also be available under a second phase of this program, although funding under phase one, does not guarantee funding under subsequent phases.
