The aim of the Chab Dai Charter is to facilitate a commitment to excellence in practice and collectively lead the way forward in our efforts to rehabilitate or prevent victims of trafficking and abuse. An integrated and participatory approach focuses on individual strategic organization assessments and action plans in the areas of protection, collaboration, participation, and transparency within all relevant program stakeholder groups. It provides a systemic approach to social & collective impact because it focuses on improving relationships & trust between organizations and sharing progress and lessons learned. The outcomes of the charter assessment inform a bespoke training and capacity building initiative for each organization in order to support the commitment and growth to excellence. Measurement and monitoring of individual data is collated and analyzed to not only benefit individual members and but also to determine the coalition’s collective success towards attaining this excellence - Collectively leading the way forward in raising the standard of program impact and care for organizations working to end trafficking, exploitation, and abuse.
