What we do
1 Rescue & Rehabilitate
106 men, women and children rescued from human trafficking and modern slavery.
We work throughout the year with our partners, assist anti- human trafficking police, international law enforcement agencies, and military on multiple, large-scale, complex and often dangerous operations to identify active human trafficking, modern slavery, and child sacrifice situations. We help intercept and arrest traffickers, slave masters, witch doctors, and rescue any victims.
ENA is one of the leading organizations in Uganda working to end child sacrifice and ritual mutilation. We are also a part of a global network placing witchcraft and its widespread human rights abuses on the United Nations agenda.
100 men, women, and children received comprehensive rehabilitation.
At Engage Now Africa we recognize the great urgency to act to end modern slavery and help victims and survivors receive comprehensive rehabilitation services. This support continues until children are reintegrated with their families—when possible. For adults that are freed, and for the families where children are reunited we provide training, resources and support to help them become more self-reliant, making them less vulnerable to re-trafficking. Follow-up measures are always taken to ensure families and survivors are protected.
114 suspected human traffickers arrested and awaiting trial.
5 human traffickers prosecuted and incarcerated.
Engage Now Africa works directly with victims and survivors, anti-human trafficking police, Resident State Attorneys (RSA’s), human rights lawyers, Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), Attorney General’s, and other key judicial stakeholders to help prosecute all suspected human traffickers, slave masters and witch doctors.
260,800 men, women, and children educated and trained on prevention of human trafficking.
Engage Now Africa is preventing people and communities vulnerable to modern slavery by exposing the tricks and tactics traffickers use to exploit. Prevention is when you can convince people to change their mind from embarking on the trafficking journey or provide information ahead of time so people who will one day become victims do not see slavery as an attractive alternative anymore, so they don’t ever desire to be part of it.
We go to trafficking endemic areas and spearhead district wide sensitization events, community-based education forums, and help build capacity of law enforcement, transportation, and service industry unions to better identify and report trafficking victims. We also advocate on grassroots and National policy level, and work in partnerships with survivors, local community leaders, schools, immigration officials, key government agencies, and US embassies in Sub Saharan Africa.
