On June 15, the United States and Peru signed a Child Protection Compact (CPC) Partnership, a jointly-developed plan to address and respond to child trafficking in Peru. The U.S. Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (TIP Office) facilitates a planned TIP Office investment of $5 million in U.S. foreign assistance to one or more organizations to support implementation of the CPC Partnership over a 24-44 month period of time. Click for more information on the U.S.-Peru CPC Partnership and how to submit a proposal. Read the press release .
The TIP Office created an to educate grantees on , their roles and responsibilities throughout the vetting process, how to overcome challenges, and potential consequences for failing to fulfill their vetting obligation. This video is mandatory viewing for all recipients of TIP Office funding. Total running time 13:15.
Ambassador Coppedge (June 27): "The TIP Report is ... a symbol of our moral and legal obligation to combat human trafficking and is in keeping with our country's historical commitment to advancing human dignity and freedom around the world. This year's TIP Report ... emphasizes that governments must do everything in their power to hold traffickers accountable, from passing and enforcing tough anti-trafficking laws to prosecuting complicit officials who betray the public trust and profit from the suffering of others."
