IOFA has worked in over 20 countries in Eastern Europe, Central America, Africa, South and Southeast Asia. For the next three years, IOFA will maintain this global focus in implementing our strategic priorities: preventing adolescent trafficking and supporting youth aging out of alternative care. In 2011, we will have a special focus on the regions of Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. We chose these regions based on the high numbers of orphaned youth, the numbers of youth living in alternative care, the numbers of young people about to age out of their current living situations, and the high prevalence of human trafficking and sexual and labor exploitation.
IOFA will continue to play a leadership role in the anti-trafficking movement in the United States. Working with local partners in Illinois, New York, and other states in the U.S., IOFA will develop and facilitate multi-disciplinary task forces, outreach efforts, and coordinated service referral networks to strengthen ongoing efforts to combat human trafficking.
