SUBJECT: TANZANIA ANTI-TRAFFICKING PROPOSAL: RETURN 250
CHILDREN TO HOME VILLAGES

REF: A. STATE 8083

B. STATE 78536



1. In response to reftel A, Embassy officers worked with a
local trade union, the Domestic Conservation, Hotel Worker's
Union [CHODAWU], to develop a 20,000 US dollars proposal to
return 250 exploited children to their home villages in
Tanzania or to Nairobi. The children assisted by this
project were found in forced/exploitative domestic labor in
Arusha, Iringa, and Dar es Salaam. Most of these children
are Tanzanian, but a small number are Kenyan. This program
would build on CHODAWU's current work of withdrawing
children from forced labor by assisting CHODAWU to develop
the capacity to return these children to their home
villages. The grant would provide for construction of a
transitional center for children awaiting "repatriation,"
counseling for children and families of returnees, physical
return of children to their home village, and preliminary
data collection on repatriated children. Post intends to
inform host government officials of this grant and build
support for our anti-trafficking programs. Post also
intends to arrange a high level Embassy visit to open the
transitional center, to build public awareness about the
problem of trafficked children working in forced domestic
labor.



2. Post understands that only 18,000 US dollars have been
allocated to this program. Post believes that this program
could still be accomplished with this amount of funding, if
the target number of beneficiaries were reduced to about 200
children. Should additional funding come available, post
requests an additional 2,000 US dollars to fully fund this
proposal and assist with the return of 250 children to their
homes.



3. If a copy of the CHODAWU proposal is needed for the
Senior Policy Operating Group review, please contact
Jennifer Peterson, petersonjm@state.gov.
