Introduction

This grants program will support national projects to address the problem of
trafficking in women. Trafficking is a global human rights issue that requires
a comprehensive response from non-governmental and governmental organizations
around the world. The role of NGOs in combating trafficking is diverse and may
include programs that: educate the public about the risks of trafficking, use
media and public outreach campaigns to lobby for legislative to ensure human
rights, provide psychological, medical and legal assistance to female victims of
violence, and work to improve the economic and social status of women living in
transitional economies.
     
The Aim of the Grant Program

As a follow-up to the Network-wide Transnational Training Seminar on Trafficking
held in Budapest in June of 1998, the Network Women's Program (NWP) is offering
a small grants program in cooperation with participating National Foundations
(NF), the Global Survival Network (GSN) and the Witness project of the Lawyers
Committee for Human Rights. The grants program will support initiatives to
promote awareness of trafficking, provide support to victims and potential
victims, and advocate for legislative reform.

There are two grant programs available with a maximum grant amount of $5,000.
The programs, which will be funded with matching funds from the NWP and the NFs,

written and/or video materials distributed at the Transnational Training Seminar
in Budapest, or other materials developed or suggested by the proposed grantee.
