What is its purpose?
This indicator will measure the total number of individuals trained that complete training, technical assistance, or capacity building on the provision of protection services for victims of human trafficking. This could include a formal learning event with a curriculum, ongoing as-needed technical assistance, an embedded mentor, or other models to bolster capacity. "Protection services" refers to the provision of protection services to victims of trafficking, such as the provision of shelter, and the types of services that human trafficking shelters typically provide such as mental or physical health care, repatriation assistance, vocational training, education, legal assistance, etc. Individuals trained could include government officials, civil society, educators, religious or community leaders, etc. Please note that this indicator is a United States Government Standard Indictor, or "F Indicator", and can be included in the MEL plans of USG funded projects.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
