Foundation for Women and Children Enslaved in War (WCEW) will make widely available to interested parties and the public several services and products related to our two main programs:  1) Capacity Building and 2) Research and Publication.  Resources include the following:

Capacity Building Focused on Securing External Resources

Grant Development Program — Training and Consultation.  WCEW is sponsoring a free-of-charge grant development program for non-profit organizations that directly serve victims and survivors of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation. 

WCEW provides this service to partner organizations that have attended our Zoom-based grant writing training program (also free) and have a need and an interest in submitting grant proposals to funding sponsors.  We work with partners through all stages of grant development, from identifying sponsors, to writing letters of intent, to writing, submitting, and (if necessary) revising grant proposals to foundation, corporate, and/or public sector agencies. 

WCEW will work with our partner until a grant is in hand.   

We also partner with organizations in efforts to secure smaller-scale donations for projects or to enhance in-kind support.  Our goal is to help organizations develop their capacity to obtain new resources for their programs that can sustain the organizations over time. 

Small grants to strengthen organizational self-assessment may be available.  These small grants support projects that embed assessment aimed at program enhancement.  For more information on capacity building initiatives, contact Marietta Baba or Dawn Lehman.

Research and Publication

WCEW and its partners have created a summary of literature on human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation (CSE) in North America, with publication between 2015 and 2023.  This summary is in the form of an Annotated Bibliography providing original summaries of 158 empirical papers, reports, and books.  The purpose of this summary is to support the writing of grant proposals and service delivery enhancement.
