    16. 16. Assessment <ul><li>Direct Services </li></ul><ul><li>Moderately successful in aiding victims on a case by case basis. In general direct service organizations excel at specific tasks, i.e., translation services. With this in mind, it is a travesty that these organizations most often fail to coordinate amongst other service providers . This lack of potentially synergistic alliances, contributes to the current situation of mediocre care. </li></ul><ul><li>Advocacy </li></ul><ul><li>With UN Protocol as evidence, trafficking advocates largely successful in encouraging trafficking legislation worldwide. Also generally successful in implementing regional and enforcement-oriented supplemental legislation . The present advocacy task of legislation enforcement is an arduous battle. However, all indicators point to a marked increase in trafficking awareness and widespread concern . </li></ul>

    20. 20. Create Coordinator Position <ul><li>Establish position in the La Strada organization to coordinate activity amongst the La Strada offices. </li></ul><ul><li>Additionally this coordinator would: </li></ul><ul><li>• Harmonize reintegration efforts, conferences and advocacy. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Generate organized and efficient European anti-trafficking efforts. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Facilitate greater U.S. involvement in European anti-trafficking efforts by functioning as an informed contact person. </li></ul></ul></ul>
    21. 21. Conclusions <ul><li>Human trafficking is an egregious human rights violation that did not rapidly emerge and will not promptly depart. </li></ul><ul><li>Thankfully, governments, NGO’s, and foundations are beginning to recognize the necessity of trafficking protection, prosecution, and prevention. However, increased awareness and resources are crucial to successfully eradicate human trafficking. </li></ul><ul><li>The time is ripe for foundations if properly focused and coordinated to enter the human trafficking arena with confidence that their resources will generate substantial and essential alleviation. </li></ul>
