Recent specialist anti-trafficking instruments have expanded the conception of trafficking to include several additional exploitative forms. Further forms of exploitation have been associated with trafficking through the Protocol's Travaux Préparatoires or other interpretative texts. Victims are trafficked to be used as beggars, for forced or sham marriages, benefit fraud, production of pornography, to mention some of the forms countries have reported.

Senegal   l  20 000 $ Contribution   l  2014-2017

Intervention: Senegal is one of the poorest countries in the world. Dakar, concentrates about 25% of the total population, as a result of an important rural migration. When families collapse, children are the first victims. Those who are no longer under family or Koranic master protection are forced to live in groups in the streets.  Key Objectives: Within the Project 'Fighting against social exclusion: A support and care mechanism for street children and children victims of trafficking in Dakar, Senegal' funded by the UN Trust Fund, Samu Social Senegal (SSN) aims at providing street children and children victims of trafficking with a consistent package of services, including, streets rounds, medical, social or psychological care, a 24-hour accommodation, as well as an individual reintegration project.  Achievements: About 2500 to 3000 street children and victims of trafficking in Dakar received free and professional medical, social and psychosocial care. The children who were most at risk were sheltered in a professionalized emergency accommodation managed by Samu Social Senegal.
