Audit of USAID/Russia’s Program to Reduce Trafficking in Persons

Country: Russian Federation
Fiscal Year: 2009
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: No

In Europe, the trafficking of human beings became a major source of concern in the 1990s. Since then, media reports of women from Central and Eastern Europe who are being trafficked for sexual exploitation have became too numerous to ignore. USAID/Russia’s program to reduce trafficking in persons is designed to combat trafficking of women in Russia by creating viable alternatives for at-risk women, empowering them with individual training and awareness that builds confidence and professional experience while creating new economic opportunities. The program seeks to work with existing anti-domestic-violence crisis centers to develop a network of regional empowerment centers that can offer services and consultations for women at risk and victim returnees. In addition, public education campaigns are used to create awareness at a grassroots level and to engage policymakers.

The audit will (1) determine if USAID/Russia’s activities to combat the trafficking of women created viable alternatives for women at risk and (2) assess the activities’ impact.
