Stamping out Slavery in Nigeria Programme and Evaluation

The UK FCDO-funded Stamping out Slavery in Nigeria (SoSiN) programme aims to improve the evidence base on modern slavery and develop and test new and innovative approaches to tackling human trafficking, mainly in Edo State, the epicentre of human trafficking in Nigeria.

Programme delivery is structured around four components:

  • Support to Edo State government and civil society response, as well as generating and sharing information on human trafficking and unsafe migration
  • Support to the UK Home Office to build on existing relations at the federal level
  • Support testing and developing pilot interventions focused on changing norms and behaviours that drive human trafficking and unsafe migration
  • Independent MEL Unit to contribute to data quality improvements, independent evaluation and sharing of evidence

The scope of the baseline is an assessment of GO (Government Organisations) and NGO’s approach to MDS (modern-day slavery), complemented with a community survey to assess the perceptions of citizens to MDS and GO and NGO response. This was meant to set out the basis to demonstrate how the SoSiN components are delivering the observed outcomes. With the early closure of the programme, the baseline assessment will be a useful reference document for FCDO in determining any continuing or potential future support in the sector. It can also be used by other donors in the area.
