Under the Talkam Against Trafficking and Abuse Project, DEVATOP engaged in grassroot sensitization in schools by training teachers who will be advocates and mandated to sensitize their students against human trafficking and gender-based violence.
10 teachers from various schools in Edo State were trained and equipped with materials to sensitize their students. Present at the training were members of the Edo State Ministry of Education, Edo State Zonal Commander for the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Person, representatives of Genius Hub Africa, Network Against Child Trafficking Abuse and Labor, Accion Conta la Trata (Spain) and other relevant stakeholders.
The trained teachers also joined in the Panel discussion and song unveiling that followed immediately after the teacher's training and were tasked with the responsibility of sensitizing their students and various schools. This according to the project coordinator will make students less vulnerable to human trafficking and gender-based violence.
