1. How has your experience with Kamo been over the last three years?

"At Sanjog we believe that it’s pointless to invest in any kind of relationship with anyone who is not willing to work on themselves just a little every day. We feel that an organization or a person who takes no interest in any form of self-improvement, personal development or spiritual growth will also not be inclined to make much of an effort building a truly meaningful connection with you. And, in the last 3 years, Kamo has been that partner- striving with every passing day to improve, develop and grow; to dream bigger but to stay grounded in reality and to strengthen this relationship of being partners with us. Kamo has strengthened the experience that “it's pointless to try and dance the tango solo”…so we at Sanjog know, that we have a partner to dance with, dream with and take up the dare of the challenging work we do."

2. What values do you think Kamo brings (has been bringing) into the anti-human trafficking ecosystem of in India?

"The work experience with Kamonohashi Project, Japan has been extremely evolving and enriching for Save The Children India. It has brought several systems to maintain checks and balances in the project implementation which varies from evidence based research to technology powered tools for monitoring and evaluation. Kamonohashi has been constantly looking for innovative and proven solutions to the complex issue like human trafficking and piloting within the Indian context and community. This also involves building and strengthening coalitions for enhanced coordination among Government and Non Government organizations. Save The Children India, in partnership with Kamonohashi Project, Japan will strive towards achieving its Mission of Making India a Child friendly Nation by implementing innovative solutions to the issue of human trafficking that will provide access to justice for survivors of human trafficking."

Our partnership started in 2014 when we worked with the Kamonohashi team on monitoring of their India projects. The creativity and flexibility of the team made working with them an exciting and a learning experience. The team was very supportive and open to new ideas making the entire engagement complete in a consultative and participative mode. It was a true partnership and we look forward working on more projects."
