RENATE undertook this Mapping Exercise in order to ascertain the extent of human trafficking in the countries where its members are working on anti-trafficking issues in areas of prevention and protection, from victim support through shelters, to education-awareness, policy and advocacy, recovery and reintegration as well as campaigning.

What RENATE did not know was the extent of that work, its impact, and the requirements for resources which could be shared across the Network so as to strengthen its impact in ending the culture of human trafficking.

It was in this spirit of enquiry – to be able to strengthen the contribution of women religious their congregations and associates, in the world-wide fight to resist human trafficking and to extend the hand of God in supporting victims of this terrible crime – that RENATE set out to understand what more needed to be done in planning strategically into the future.
