Partnered Peer-To-Peer Law Enforcement Training
YKYU has conducted peer-to-peer best practice conferences for local Indonesian law enforcement and prosecutors conducted by an alliance of foreign and Indonesian government depts. These conferences have been a success on several fronts: including better tools for victim identification and proper guidance of survivors throughout the judicial process; an increase in the launch of investigations and rescues at the regional level; and greater inter-agency cooperation through the court process has been facilitated. Through these conferences we have also developed important relationships with regional civil departments and are seeing genuine progress in the prosecution of those committing human trafficking crimes.
Rescues: Case Managed Intervention Support
In most cases, when reports of a sexually exploited child are made, YKYU partners with the police, government bodies, and other NGO's to provide support for rescues; specifically by providing case coordinators to work with the family ahead of a child’s rescue.
Education & Awareness
One of the most powerful ways to end human trafficking is to educate and empower a community to fight it. To that end, YKYU hosts multiple education and awareness events for the general public and often partners with institutions like schools and churches.
We also offer awareness programs for concerned citizens to host in their own communities. Go here for more information on hosting your own event.
East Java Project
YKYU is also engaged in a specific project with an especially vulnerable population in East Java providing poverty remediation and micro-finance business options to improve their daily lives.
