Hagar Afghanistan’s Combatting Human Trafficking in Afghanistan (CHTA) project is a capacity building project which provides high quality training programmes on identifying and preventing human trafficking, for government officials, police, educators, and religious and community leaders. Other trainings on trauma-informed care are given to care providers for victims of trafficking.

CHTA also facilitates coalition meetings of important stakeholders and policy makers, with the goal of improving networking, capacity, and case management throughout the country. Hagar in Afghanistan were pivotal in establishing these coalitions, and continue to be integral to their leadership.

This year, Hagar and coalition partners led the development of a national referral system for victims of trafficking which has now been approved for use across the country. In Nangrahar province, Hagar assisted the inauguration of the provincial commission on combatting trafficking. Now, the commission meets regularly to address trafficking in their province, and the provincial governor has become involved. Hagar continues to give technical support and training to this and other provincial commissions. In many of these provinces, perceptions about trafficking and survivors of it are changing significantly because of the work that CHTA is doing.

“Without Hagar, it never would’ve been possible to have such a strong and well-organized coalition for fighting trafficking in our province.” – Director for the Ministry of Justice in Nangahar

“I am especially thankful to Hagar for such a productive training. In Nimruz, due to a lack of knowledge and understanding of human trafficking by governmental officials, we haven’t been able to identify traffickers and victims correctly. After the first day of training, I have gained knowledge to be able to act seriously against traffickers. I can also pass this knowledge on to other police, so that traffickers will be arrested and punished.” – Representative from the Department of Combatting Human Trafficking and Human Smuggling in Police Headquarters in Nimruz Province.

Hagar pursues the highest degree of care and protection for each of its clients. To protect the identity of our clients, names have been changed and images do not necessarily represent the individual profiled.
