Ruhama is part of the Coalition for the Abolition of Prostitution (CAP International) , an advocacy vehicle for frontline NGOs and a global convener for change.
The fundamental objective of CAP International is to:
- Advocate for the adoption and implementation of progressive legislation and international standards that amplify efforts to eliminate the sexual exploitation of women and girls
- Deliver effective protection, support and exit options to prostituted persons and victims of trafficking
- Empower frontline services and survivors of prostitution.
Funded by its members, CAP International is made of 33 NGOs in 27 countries that provide direct assistance to victims of prostitution and sexual exploitation across the globe.
CAP International empowers its members in their capacity to obtain progressive legal reforms in their countries and to be heard internationally. As an active member of CAP International, Ruhama has a voting right within its General Assembly and our Policy and Communications Manager, Amanda Keane, also serves as a board member of the coalition.
