AHATA and CMMA join forces to prevent human trafficking

The Aruba Hotel & Tourism Association (AHATA), in collaboration with the Coordination Center on Human Trafficking Smuggling Aruba (CMMA), organized 2 informative sessions to raise awareness among its members about human trafficking. These sessions, facilitated by Jeannette Richardson, National Coordinator and Director of CMMA, are designed to equip personnel in the hospitality and tourism sector with the necessary knowledge to recognize signs of human trafficking and how to report a case.

Employees from various departments participated, including General Managers, Bellmen, Housekeeping staff, Receptionists, Servers, Beach Attendants, and Bartenders. In this way, they can unite their efforts and improve the chances of identifying a possible case and saving a victim from their situation. The participants’ reactions highlighted the value and importance of this initiative.

In this manner, AHATA continues to invest in the development of its members and plays an active role in the prevention of human trafficking, thereby enhancing safety not only in the tourism sector but for every individual on our island. AHATA expresses gratitude to the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino for their collaboration by providing the ballroom where the informational sessions took place.
