Freedom For All recently interviewed Institute Special Counsel to Uganda Tyler Dunman for a partner story on their website, entitled “Fighting Human Trafficking During The Pandemic: A Look At The Human Trafficking Institute’s Work In Uganda.”
Chloé Perceval, Freedom for All Communications Manager, writes, “As the pandemic keeps affecting us all, we want to keep hearing from our partners who work in places that were already vulnerable to human trafficking before this year and see how their work has been impacted by the global crisis. We reached out to Tyler Dunman, who was hired by Freedom For All’s partner, the Human Trafficking Institute, to work on human trafficking cases as special counsel to Uganda’s Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Tucked in between the DRC, Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania and South Sudan, Uganda is a country where a lack of employment opportunities has resulted in a high vulnerability to human trafficking. The Human Trafficking Institute is helping the Ugandan government strengthen its criminal justice system so that it is able to deal with cases of human trafficking. For about a year, Tyler and his team have trained prosecutors and police officers across the country.” Click here to read the full article.
