    Objectives and results

    The overall aim was to prevent and reduce trafficking in human beings for sexual exploitation by promoting a human rights approach. Specifically,
    the objective was to strengthen both the prevention of trafficking of women and girls at risk and the system of protection of victims in Guatemala.

    Several awareness raising actions were organized for NGOs, decision makers and civil society to sensitize them about the risks of trafficking as a form of violence and violation of human rights.

    Moreover, capacity building actions targeted public national and local authorities together with NGOS to set up a monitoring mechanism.
