In 2020, we were able to partner with a small organization called Mission Active to launch an economic empowerment program teaching tailoring, design, and business development to women in Kampala. This program serves as prevention as it provides viable skills and income to vulnerable women, keeping them from traveling abroad and being susceptible to international trafficking.
