RENATE members in Hungary find creative ways to attend Human Trafficking Prevention training programme during time of COVID-19 Pandemic


Just before the Pandemic reached Hungary, OM Hungary organized a one- week human trafficking prevention training from16-21 March. Colleagues at OM South Africa sent two trainers to Hungary with their Traffick-Wise training.

However, on 16 March which was to be the first day of the training, the Hungarian Government prohibited public events in the country in an effort to reduce the spread of the Corona virus. In response and not to waste the preparations for the training, the team set up the training online in Hungary and it went ahead as planned.

Two sisters from SOLWODI Hungary took part in it and two of our volunteers. The training was a very professional formation, touching and inspiring for all the 14 participants.

We plan on putting all this training into practice in our awareness- raising workshops once COVID-19 social distancing regulations have relaxed.
