SEPARATED, UNACCOMPANIED AND TRAFFICKED CHILDREN

Funder: US Conference of Catholic Bishops

Under this grant, ISIM and the USCCB Migration and Refugee Services organized meetings that brought together government officials, nongovernmental organizations and others to discuss issues pertaining to separated, unaccompanied and trafficked children who arrive in the United States from other countries. In particular, the meetings sought to develop tangible strategies and protocols to tackle the problem of unidentified, un-served child-victims of trafficking and unaccompanied refugee and asylum seeking children.
