Summary
Using the good experiences of many different programs, this brief manual outlines practical suggestions for frontline anti-slavery workers. It is intended for people who want to start new programs, improve their existing services, or encourage donors to provide stronger support. People who learned some English in school will find the simplified language easy to read. Necessary additional words – such as vulnerable, prosecution, depression – are defined in the text and in a word list. The manual emphasizes suggestions that are practical where human and money resources are limited. Through discussing each of the 14 chapters, rehabilitation staff will be helped to find what will work best for them and their clients of any age as they come out of any form of slavery.
