a) Prevention and sensitization on human trafficking  

On  9th of February MEO was represeted at a seminar held at Tangaza Catholic university.  The theme was “ Ending Human Trafficking Ends with you and Me”The discussions revolved around the topic and most of the participants were religious. The seminar was enriching and there were various speakers who challenged the audience about imperssive collusio wit trafficking fr failing to report anomaries.  The menace is is getting worse as more and more young children and youth get captured by wayward cartells who promise heavenly life to desperate youth.
