Building a movement of frontline anti-slavery leaders

July 12, 2018

At the Freedom Fund, we have witnessed the power of frontline organisations in tackling various forms of slavery in their communities. Their work is essential to free victims and address the root causes of slavery. However, community-level leaders are often caught up in the day-to-day work of their organisations and can lack the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, knowledge of best practices and networks.

That is why we are committed to creating a Freedom Leadership Program to nurture and facilitate the development of a new generation of anti-slavery frontline practitioners, especially women, through an impactful leadership and networking initiative for current and emerging leaders of anti-slavery organisations. To this end, we are launching a call for proposals to find a key partner to lead this design and development work, in close collaboration with the Freedom Fund.

We believe that strengthening the leadership and technical capacity of frontline professionals will contribute to innovation and change within themselves, their organisations and the communities in which they work.

Our objective is to ensure that there are powerful national and global networks of dedicated individuals in high slavery prevalence countries who can share and advocate for best practices within the anti-slavery sector on behalf of their organisations. For more information about this initiative, click on our request for proposals.
