The Salvation Army PROMISE (Partnership to Rescue Our Minors from
Sexual Exploitation) hosted an international conference at Camp Lake,
Wisconsin on October 14-16, 2009 for partners from Stop the Traffik.
Representatives from nine countries (Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium,
England, India, Kyrgyzstan, the Netherlands and the United States) were
present at Camp Wonderland to discuss and further develop current and
future projects intended to combat human trafficking on a global scale.
Some of the conference highlights included the launch of START FREEDOM,
a project in schools which encourages youth ages 12-18 to become social
advocates against human trafficking; a campaign to promote the
production and consumption of fair trade chocolate; and ACT (Active
Communities Against Trafficking),a grassroots effort intended for
community members to report suspected trafficking in their
neighborhoods. Stop the Traffik and its partners also agreed to focus
on initiatives for business travelers, the financial sector, girls
education and victim care.
Rohida Khan, Director of The Salvation Army Western Territory's Network for Emergency Trafficking Services, received the Esperanza Service Provider of the Year Award for her tireless efforts on behalf of highly traumatized and vulnerable trafficking survivors.
