Uganda Episcopal Conference
(Uganda Catholic Secretariat)
Combating Human Trafficking in Uganda Project
In 2020 John Paul II Justice & Peace Centre (JPIIJPC) in partnership with the Uganda Episcopal Conference (Uganda Catholic Secretariat) started the implementation of a project, titled “Combating Human Trafficking in Uganda.” The project aims to combat human trafficking and any form of slavery in Uganda. It addresses the various human trafficking challenges and provides an opportunity for the Catholic Church in Uganda to participate more constructively and in a coordinated manner in the struggle against human trafficking. The implementation of a program for prevention and combatting of the human trafficking in Uganda raises awareness regarding the ongoing social evil, advocates for improved legislation and helps the victims to receive justice.
