This Learning Paper Series was developed by the USAID Asia Counter Trafficking in Persons (CTIP) project with the overall aim to learn from our current and previous programming to better inform our future work. Winrock In- ternational is the implementing partner of this USAID-funded regional project. Winrock also implements six other USAID CTIP projects in nine countries: Bangladesh, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, Thailand, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. In addition to this, Winrock is the implementing partner to a CTIP project in Bangladesh, generously funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
Based on the wealth of experience coming from the region and the unique perspective of the regional project, USAID Asia CTIP decided to develop the Learning Paper Series to pull out crucial learnings that can be widely disseminated to funders, our teams at home office, our project staff in the field, and anyone else working in CTIP that wants to ensure the highest quality program delivery.
The papers in this series are meant to be small in scope, tackling specific areas of concern in the general program- ming models. In the future, the aim is to tackle the identified shortcomings with CTIP partners and ensure that ways of working are evidence based and impactful for survivors.
