A Brief History Of MeCAHT

MeCAHT is an international faith – based, media-driven non-profit coalition working to reduce the incidences of human trafficking among vulnerable groups. MeCAHT operates in South Africa, Nigeria and has numerous partners in Europe and USA.

In 2008, YWAM Media Village Nigeria (www.mediavillagenigeria.org) started a counter trafficking initiative, which trained journalists from Nigeria and Germany to report on human trafficking in the two countries.

In 2009, Media Village went into a formal foundational partnership with KIT (Church integration Ministries) Denmark (http://www.kit-danmark.dk/dk/), and other relevant Nigerian partners. It was there that this Media Village counter trafficking initiative was defined as MeCAHT (Media Campaign Against Human Trafficking). In 2015, MeCAHT could only be registered in Nigeria as Media Coalition & Awareness to Halt Trafficking; the acronym still stayed the same as MeCAHT.

MeCAHT was registered in South Africa in 2014 as Media Campaign Against Human Trafficking.

In 2016 Project Jewel e.V was founded in Germany, with the goal to finance the fight against human trafficking. Project Jewel is a promotion agency for MeCAHT as well as like-minded NGOs.

Through information and fundraising Project Jewel contributes towards the fight against the exploitation of people.

Project Jewel e.V. is recognized as a non-profit in Germany and issues donation certificates upon request.
