The Safe Migration in Central Asia Project (SMICA) is a five-year program funded by USAID and implemented by Winrock International (WI). The project aims to increase the capacity of all stakeholders to meet their mutual responsibilities, so they are more self-reliant in their efforts to prevent human trafficking and forced labour, protect victims of human trafficking (VoTs), and promote safe migration. SMICA supports the strengthening of bilateral and multilateral country strategies and actions to promote human rights-based migration, counter human trafficking and forced labour; reduce the vulnerability of at-risk groups to all forms of human trafficking and forced labour; and expand and improve the identification and assistance of victims of trafficking. The project is being implemented in four Central Asian countries: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
USAID Asia CTIP is a multi-year program funded by USAID and implemented by WI. The program is a regional activity that focuses on transnational and regional challenges to combat human trafficking. The program aims to reduce the trafficking of persons in Asia through coordinated and consolidated action by governments, civil society and business that will foster cross-border cooperation, develop opportunities for private-sector leadership, and improve the quality of data associated with human trafficking.
