Trafficking in persons (TiP) is a regional, cross-border human rights violation. We are using a regional, cross-border approach to fight it in Bosnia and Croatia. Our community partnership model connects "sister communities" on the border between these countries. We also award small grants to local partners for a broad range of prevention and awareness-raising activities including radio broadcasts, student poster contests and school lectures. In contrast to many anti-TiP efforts, we attack the roots of TiP in communities by advocating for social change, increasing public awareness for prevention and initiating community responses rather than short-term social services. Our cross-border, community-based approach is innovative and unique.
