On February 28, Warnath Group conducted a foundational training with the Golfito, Puntarenas Local Subsystem of Protection (SSLP), expanding work with multi-disicplinary teams (MDTs) to the province of Puntarenas. This training focused on understanding child trafficking, how trafficking in persons occurs in Costa Rica, and dispelling myths and misconceptions about child trafficking. This training also explained the five steps of victim protection and the role of SSLPs at each of these steps. Of particular focus in the training was building capacity in the preliminary identification and referral of child and adolescent trafficking victims by community-level practitioners (teachers, health workers, social workers, police, prosecutors, NGOs).

This work with MDTs in Costa Rica is ongoing over the course of the IACT Program being implemented in the provinces of Guanacaste and Puntarenas, Costa Rica.
