Anex CDW, Molo Songololo, International Organization for Migration and Rape Crisis are the founding members of this forum. The establishment of this forum was motivated by the need to coordinate a provincial response to trafficking in persons.
The forum was launched on the 12 December 2007 with a membership of twelve organizations working within the field of prevention, protection and prosecution.
The scope of the CTC would necessitate:
Coordinating, supporting and developing tools to strengthen a provincial response to trafficking in persons by:
- Responding collectively to legislation and policy that progressively addresses trafficking in persons and related issues.
- Recording of current information on trafficking of persons within the Western Cape.
- Developing tools to assist victims of human trafficking.
- Collaborating with relevant stakeholders to address the issue of human trafficking.
