Individuals

We believe that if stakeholders are equipped with the wider collective knowledge, they will be more effective, impactful and strategic in their work. By bringing together different resources, expertise and perspectives, we can tackle human trafficking in all sectors of society.

Since 2014, Shiva Foundation has been bringing different stakeholders together who want to use their skills, resources and networks to make a positive social impact. One way Shiva Foundation accomplished this was through its Women for Change programme. You can learn more about the successful Women for Change Breakfast Series that ran over 2016 and find exciting ways to get involved here
