Client: ACILS and ICMC
Period: April 2005 - April 2006

OTMI - in collaboration with ACILS and ICMC - created the Derita Bisu (Silent Suffering) anti-human trafficking curriculum and training kit, which was developed to help raise awareness of trafficking in Indonesia.

The kit includes:

  • a four-part video series

  • a two-book training of trainers curriculum manual for migrant workers, law enforcers, legislators and agencies

  • the website

The curriculum re-enforces tips and warnings to ensure that participants fully understand the situation and it empowers them to take actions to protect themselves and warn others.

The Training of Trainers was conducted in April 2005 to April 2006.

OTMI acts as ACILS and ICMC partner, has designed and produced an Anti Human Trafficking video training kit and curriculum to raise awareness and change behaviour to help defeat the traffickers. The public awareness campaign has already received significant praise for its effectiveness and innovation This Project was also followed by a series of training of Facilitator which also runs by OTMI along with ACILS/ICMC, in 10 vulnerable provinces in Indonesia.

The objectives of this action was to train NGOs and government activist from 10 vulnerable provinces, using the video kit and the manual, which then made them a facilitator or super trainer. During the 3 day training course, they were taught on how to train effectively and give them extensive information on trafficking issues. They were expected to train targets of this training which consist of migrant worker, law enforcers, legislators, and also migrant worker agents, and state employees. The Training was held in 10 most vulnerable provinces in Indonesia, namely North Sumatra, Batam, Jakarta, Central Java, West Java, Central Java, West Kalimantan, East Kalimantan, North Sulawesi, West Nusa Tenggara. The expected number of participants in this training was 300 super trainers (facilitators) from various NGOs, society, and government Institution.

The result of the action is well-produced anti trafficking video, modules, websites, and campaign kit. We also have trained 454 facilitators from 297 organizations around Indonesia. And recently the training has expanded to 32 teachers and 96 labour union members in Cilacap and Sukohardjo. Total of facilitators 550 facilitators who will turn out to train migrant workers, law enforcer, and decision makers.

The project also produced the popular website

In 2006, the campaign kit was then distributed through the Scout movement, a popular activity for youth in Indonesia and chosen because its members are prime targets for labor recruiters.
