GFN has partnered with Compassion International Ghana to work together towards ending modern slavery. Compassion International has a network of over 400 church partners with which they work on a number of issues, including human trafficking and human right abuses.
One of our first joint activities was a training session about the Faith For Freedom App for Compassion International church partners in December 2022. In 2023, we will continue looking for ways to collaborate in Ghana to end modern slavery.
GFN is collaborating with IRCK to carry out a programme of work during 2023 and 2024 in Kenya. This involves forming an Advisory Panel to contextualise and expand the FFF App content, the creation of a Kenyan Federation of Faith Leaders to carry out activities aimed at eradicating modern slavery and a number of advocacy projects together with Walk Free.
We have also delivered two Government Engagement Workshops (GEW) for faith leaders in Nairobi and Mombasa to build on their government-facing skills and help them to use their platform to engage with human rights issues.
