Anti-Trafficking Work/ Prevention of Trafficking In Persons Programs.

A strategic programmatic shift in 2008 expanded the organization’s mandate to implement more holistic interventions to combat human trafficking with sustainability and grassroots engagement as foundational principles.

Rahab Uganda also initiated the repatriation of cross-border victims/survivors from various countries (Thailand, China, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, U.A.E., etc) and provided them with airport pickups, family tracings and reunifications, psychosocial support temporary shelter, feeding, medical support, and referrals to other organizations, and secured them employment.


Rahab Uganda has individually and through coalitions, networks, and consortia been part of various fact-finding initiatives directed at accurately profiling and addressing the scourge of TIP in Uganda through anti-trafficking advocacy campaigns, lobby meetings with key stakeholders in the community (schools, churches, villages, community leaders, religious leaders), private sector, and government—-to local government, national bodies and ministries, and other civil society organizations.
