THE PROJECT

In Peru, a comprehensive project aimed at combating human trafficking and violence against women and children is underway, combining legal, social, and educational initiatives to create a multi-faceted approach to this critical issue. This project involves the establishment of dedicated task forces within law enforcement agencies to identify and dismantle trafficking networks and provide training for officers on handling such cases with sensitivity and efficacy.

 

Additionally, the project partners with local community leaders and churches to offer safe havens and psychological support for victims, ensuring they receive the necessary care and rehabilitation.

 

Community outreach programs are also integral, focusing on raising awareness and educating the public about the signs of trafficking and abuse while promoting gender equality and empowerment. By fostering collaboration between government bodies, non-profits, and local communities, the project aims to create a safer environment where women and children are protected from exploitation and violence, and survivors are supported in rebuilding their lives.

 

 


 

THE HARD TRUTH

60%

HAVEN'T REPORTED TO THE POLICE

30%

ARE VICTIMS DOMESTIC ABUSE

7%

DON'T TELL ANYONE ABOUT IT

The Government of Peru does not fully meet the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking; however, it is making significant efforts to do so. The government demonstrated increasing efforts compared to the previous reporting period; therefore Peru remained on Tier 2. The government demonstrated increasing efforts by investigating and convicting more traffickers, increasing funding for law enforcement efforts, and implementing a new national anti-trafficking action plan.

 

However, the government did not meet the minimum standards in several key areas. Poor interagency coordination continued to hinder victim identification and assistance. Many ministries reported they did not have adequate funding to fulfill their anti-trafficking mandates. The complicity of some government officials undermined efforts to combat trafficking, but the government only reported one ongoing investigation of a complicit official in 2017.

El gobierno del Perú no cumple con los estándares mínimos para la eliminación de la trata; Sin embargo, está haciendo esfuerzos significativos para hacerlo. El gobierno demostró esfuerzos crecientes en comparación con el período del informe anterior; por lo tanto, Perú permaneció en el Nivel 2. El gobierno demostró esfuerzos crecientes al investigar y condenar a más traficantes, aumentar el financiamiento para los esfuerzos de aplicación de la ley e implementar un nuevo plan nacional de acción contra la trata.

 

Sin embargo, el gobierno no cumplió con los estándares mínimos en varias áreas clave. La mala coordinación interinstitucional siguió obstaculizando la identificación y asistencia de las víctimas. Muchos ministerios informaron que no tenían fondos suficientes para cumplir con sus mandatos contra la trata. La complicidad de algunos funcionarios gubernamentales socavó los esfuerzos para combatir el tráfico, pero el gobierno solo informó una investigación en curso de un funcionario cómplice en 2017.
