Making Your Presence Known

15 Jun

TAMPEP does a lot of important work in Turin. The problem is, too many people don’t know about it. There is something to be said for helping people regardless of the attention it brings your way, but there is also something to be gained by proclaiming your presence out loud and hoping the whole world hears you.

In the TAMPEP office, they are all too aware of their need to raise their visibility. This is the main reason I am here this summer. Rosanna and I have talked about the importance of the website I am building. It has the potential to attract organizations seeking to assist victims of trafficking and wanting a partner in the project, as well as prospective donors. It can extend their reach and increase the number of people they help.

I am happy to be able to assist them in this way. I see TAMPEP’s staff every day engaged in the business of fighting trafficking and its attendant social and legal effects. This is work that can consume so much time that one is left with little room to concern themselves with issues of self-promotion.

The task I face now is to ensure that when people come to this site, they see how much TAMPEP has accomplished and is accomplishing, as well as its future potential.
