One of the Pan American Development Foundation’s (PADF) key strategic goal areas is advancing rights and justice. Our activities are grounded on 60 years of experience and an organizational commitment to learning. PADF’s technical teams exchange ideas and best practices, seeking to create a hemisphere of opportunity for all.
In this podcast, Mayra Alarcón, technical director of “Camino Seguro,” a program that combats trafficking in persons (TIP) along the migration route in Guatemala, Honduras, and southern Mexico, shares ideas and reflections with Irina Bacci, technical director of a program that aims to eradicate forced labor in the cattle ranching sector in the state of Pará, Brazil.
Through “Camino Seguro,” PADF aims to prevent TIP, strengthen institutional frameworks for the protection of victims or potential victims on the migration route, and offer support services to TIP survivors in Guatemala, Honduras, and southern Mexico. Conversely, the program in Brazil focuses on prevention, protection of victims, and prosecution of crimes related to forced labor in the state of Pará, Brazil.
