The latest issue of the Atlantic focuses on the story of a women enslaved in an American household written by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Alex Tizon.
Our HISTORY: At the end of 2009 a symposium was held at the British High Commission to engage relevant high level stakeholders on the topic of human trafficking. Cheri Blair was the guest speaker and the event was made possible by Thare Machi Education. One of the outcomes of the event was the need for all the parties that play a role in preventing and dealing with human trafficking to work together nationally, as the nature of the crime requires a joint response if it is to be addressed effectively. During 2010, research and workshops were conducted to determine a base for the network and to identify which critical gaps and strategic imperatives should be addressed. The National Freedom Network (NFN) was formally launched in May 2011 and has since grown into a solid national network of counter-human trafficking role players across South Africa.
Our Vision is to see all sectors of society organised and united in their efforts to prevent and combat Trafficking in Persons (TiP).
Our Mission is to effectively fight Trafficking in Persons (TiP) through strategic networking, partnership and collaboration.
