Survivors’ centrality is key for Tafteesh

Well-meaning anti trafficking service providers often make decisions for survivors of human trafficking on their behalf without listening to them, provide them with services that they do not want, patronise them and treat them as passive beings resulting in dependence, preventing empowerment and often bad rehabilitation strategies.

Our intervention

Tafteesh has successfully created tools and technologies that create more equitable relationships between survivors and service providers, enabling spaces for processes that mandate survivors' centrality and participation in decision making and enabling service providers to break the hierarchy and listen to critical feedback by survivors, including evaluation of their services.


Survivors as leaders are now participating in the planning, monitoring, research and feedback process.


The agency of survivors in centrality turmoil the traditional system of provider-client relationship.
