Combating Trafficking in Persons

Trafficking in Persons (TIP) is a modern form of slavery involving the control of a person through force, fraud, or coercion. Unfortunately, in the development industry, we often operate in contexts and countries at higher risk for TIP. This course is designed to help CNFA's employees understand the different types of TIP, identify TIP or risk of TIP in a project context, develop protocol to address instances of TIP, and comply with required United States Government regulations.

This is a required course under CNFA's Ethics Program. At the close of this training, there will be a brief assessment to ensure employees completed the course material.
