Presented October 12, 2012 at Fourth Annual Interdisciplinary Conference on Human Trafficking, Lincoln, Nebraska.
Love146 is an anti-trafficking organization whose mission is the abolition of child trafficking and exploitation. In response to the child trafficking and exploitation issue, we operate programs in the US, Europe, and Southeast Asia through either providing direct services or working through local partners. We wanted an engagement strategy for our partnerships that would serve several purposes for our organization: “programmatize” our capacity building efforts; strengthen collaborative efforts between partnerships; and, create a more effective monitoring and evaluative system. Thus, Love 146 connected with the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth in order to develop a way to engage with NGO partners in Cambodia, one of our focus countries. The request was for the Tucks Students Consulting Team to develop a strategy which would incorporate Love146’s current identification and selection of partners, partner onboarding, partner engagement, and partner exit strategy. We wanted it to reflect best practices in NGO engagement and prevention activities. Additionally, we were looking for a strategy that could be applied to any and all of our partners and project undertakings. This fiscal year, Love146 began applying what we gained through this collaborative process with the Tucks team. This endeavor provided a good learning opportunity for us as well as the Tucks team, and proved to be successful in moving us forward in our monitoring and evaluating process. The unexpected but added value was having input from a group completely outside the service provider arena. We hope to continue working with the Tuck School of Business / Student Consulting Team this fall.
