Training of Trainers (ToT) to Media Professionals on Modern Slavery (Exploitation, Child

Labor, Abuse and Human Trafficking/ECLAHT)

ActionAid Ethiopia (AAE) is a gender justice, good governance, and poverty eradication international organization. It envisions a country where all enjoys their rights equally and live a dignified life. Its heart lies on gender equality where it designs its frameworks and operations on women’s and girls’ living in poverty and exclusion, young people’s meaningful engagement to fulfil their rights, ensure redistribution of resources and build their resilience. Its interventions are guided by the Human Rights Based Approach, Transformative Feminist Leadership, and Intersectional Feminist Analysis program approaches

ActionAid Ethiopia is implementing a three-year project titled CMS/Combating Modern Slavery that includes components such as: Exploitation, Child Labor, Abuse and Human Trafficking/ CECLAHT.  It is implementing the project in collaboration with four partners namely: Emmanuel Development Association (EDA), People, Health, and Environment Ethiopia Consortium (PHE- EC), Consortium of Ethiopian Human Rights Organizations (CEHRO) and Union of Ethiopian Women and Children’s Associations (UEWCA).   The project location areas are at national level (Addis Ababa), Amhara Region (South Wollo Zone, Harbu and Kutaber woredas) and SNNPRS (Hasana town and Soro woreda).

The project aims to achieve the next three major outcomes:

  1. A. Governments have implemented measures to prevent, identify and address ECLAHT, and to protect and monitor vulnerable groups and victims of ECLAHT).
  2. Businesses have implemented anti-ECLAHT measures to prevent, identify and tackle the use of human trafficking and forced labor, including the worst forms of child labor, in their own operations and supply chains.
  3. Vulnerable individuals and groups are more capable of resisting recruitment to ECLAHT.

To achieve the outcomes, AAE and its partners believe in strong media engagement in reporting, monitoring, and documenting of MS (ECLAHT).  Besides, media is a strong partner to voice out issues and concerns related to MS (ECLAHT) supporting  advocacy works  planned in this intervention and their regular engagement. Particularly, cognizant of the media being considered the 4th pillar of state adding to the executive, judiciary and legislative organs, it has pivotal role to minimize impacts of MS (ECLAHT) through discharging ethical and responsive duties. However, as MS (ECLAHT) is committed by a criminal network of people who are highly resourced and work in clandestine ways to cover up their tracks, this makes it difficult for media professionals to bring issues MS (ECLAHT) to light for multiple state actions and other preventive measures.

Thus, one of the activities AAE implements to strengthen the role of media in combating MS (ECLAHT) is conducting ToT for media professionals on Reporting, Monitoring, and Documenting of MS (ECLAHT).   Trainees are therefore expected to transfer skill, knowledge, and information they will gain from the ToT so that their colleagues also will enhance their capacity to deal with sensitivity and dynamic nature of such crimes while discharging their duties as media professionals.

Hence, AAE seeks to have standard professional service for provision of ToT whose details are stated under # 6 of this TOR to be attached to facebook page of AAE.
