The Singida Municipality covers an area approximately thirty-five km by thirty km on the major tarmacked lorry route, connecting with Dar es Salaam port via Dodoma and Tanga port via Arusha. It also serves the landlocked countries of Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda, Zaire and the Democratic Republic of Congo. There has been an influx of people migrating into Singida town from the rural areas, having an impact on the HIV and human trafficking response.
The aim of the Faraja Centre CBHC anti human trafficking programme is to provide awareness raising and public education about human trafficking. A short introduction, meaning, types, causes and side effects of antihuman trafficking are shared.
- Lack of human trafficking awareness in the community.
- The community members do not know where to report cases of human trafficking.
- Lack of employment for youth
- High confidentiality of human trafficking victims.
- To continue providing education on anti human trafficking.
- The victims of human trafficking advised to have voluntary counselling for HIV.
- Psychological rehabilitation to be sought for these victims.
- Faraja hopes to provide a programme of special skills e.g. business skills courses and short courses in Vocational Training.
