Shelter tour: Shared learning for better protection of survivors of trafficking

Innovative ideas found the right audience on this shelter tour, and words were put into action

We all have similar values and principles, that created a safe space to share, learn and refer survivors.

About the project

The Better Migration Management (BMM) Programme, funded by Germany and the European Union, aims to enable national authorities and institutions to facilitate safe, orderly and regular migration and effectively address and reduce trafficking in human beings and the smuggling of migrants within and from the Horn of Africa region by applying a human rights-based approach.

In 2017, BMM established the Regional CSO Forum to Promote Safe and Fair Migration, which today includes more than 80 CSOs working on protection and the prevention of human trafficking. BMM facilitates annual meetings of the Regional CSO Forum as well as virtual training on specific topics, such as data protection, human rights and strategic planning and fundraising, and fosters national and regional cooperation.

To date, approximately 50,000 migrants and victims of trafficking have been assisted through BMM. The programme is implemented by the British Council, CIVIPOL, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
