In support of the U.S. State Department’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (TIP Office), EnCompass and Social Impact have partnered to complete a baseline assessment of the United States–Philippines Child Protection Compact (CPC) Partnership, implemented in collaboration with national ministries.
This assessment will measure key factors in the government’s response to child trafficking—especially online sexual exploitation of children and child labor trafficking—at the start of implementation of the CPC Partnership. After implementation, EnCompass will monitor conditions through a performance evaluation to measure the effectiveness and, to the extent possible, impact of selected CPC components. Assessment results will enable the TIP Office to determine the effect of these types of partnerships and shape future arrangements to be more effective in bringing about improvements in a government’s response to child trafficking. The results will also be used by the implementing partner International Justice Mission, and the Government of the Philippines’ Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking.
