Deadline: 16 November 2015
A call for proposals has been issued by Terre des Hommes Netherlands to tackle commercial sexual exploitation of children in Uganda which is an important theme in TdH-NL’s current strategic plan (2011-2015).
Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) is one of the Worst Forms of Child Labour that is increasingly becoming a serious problem in Uganda. According to ECPAT studies (2011) the incidents and number of victims of CSEC have increased while at the same time the age at which children get involved in CSEC has decreased. Uganda is a source, transit and destination country for children trafficked for sexual purposes. These children are exploited by bar owners and lodges, while others are promised work in hotels, where they end up being sold to men.
The initial planned duration of a project should be 33 months, starting on 1 April 2016.
