For the period 2021-2024, CDTD’s work will be primarily anchored in four Pillars: – the Domestic Workers Transformation Pillar, the Sexual and Gender-Based Violence Pillar, the Counter-Trafficking in Persons Pillar and the Institutional Strengthening Pillar.

2020 marked 25 years since the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action was adopted, and five years into the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is also a year that will be remembered for the COVID-19 pandemic that resulted in a reversal in the gains made by women in various sectors, including the campaign to eliminate violence against women/girls. Such factors were put into account in CDTD’s strategic planning process {took place in year 2020}; a process that helped us to identify key pillars of work that will make CDTD more focused and effective in its quest to pursue its vision. CDTD’s Strategic Plan for the period 2021-2024, will during a unique time in history help to revamp and strengthen different elements of CDTD’s institutional set up and organizational development. It aligns well with the global aspirations contained in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) particularly the mantra – leave no one behind.

This Counter Trafficking in Persons pillar/intervention involves the direct assistance of survivors of trafficking. Other activities are information dissemination for safe migration to migrants through community-based hubs and the CDTD website’s resource centre. CDTD was instrumental in the development of the curriculum for homecare management and pre-departure training of domestic workers migrating abroad and offers them training in collaboration with the East African Institute of Homecare Management (EAIHM).
