Research and Evaluation PROJECTS
Kimetrica conducted a baseline assessment on child trafficking in Ghana -- both forced child labor and child sex trafficking -- before the introduction of the Child Protection Compact (CPC) Partnership, a four year initiative between the Government of Ghana and the United States. The assessment was executed over the course of 2015. It included over 90 key informant interviews with government officials and NGO representatives involved in the rescue and rehabilitation of trafficked children in five regions -- Greater Accra, Central, Volta, Eastern and Ashanti. In particular, it focused on the existing infrastructure to combat child trafficking, as well as the availability and use of standard operating procedures, interagency collaboration and the availability and quality of relevant statistics and databases.
