In April 1993, the "Conference on Women Empowering Women: A Human Rights Conference on Trafficking in Asian Women" held in Manila, Philippines gave birth to the CATW - Asia Pacific.
Over the years, The Coalition, in partnership with its networks, initiated programs to promote women's human rights and assists victims of trafficking, prostitution and all forms of violence against women in the Asia-Pacific region.
Recently, CATW successfully lobbied for a definition of trafficking that ensures the protection of victims and the prevention of trafficking of women through the Optional Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, supplementing the UN Convention Against Trans-national Organized Crime
The Coalition conducts education/training for government officials, students and communities from gender-sensitivity, feminist interviewing to violence against women, trafficking and prostitution. Two previous trainings that CATW-AP has had in the Philippines are: the Bantay Bugaw (Trafficker Watch) for the concerned local government offices and communities (known as barangays in the Philippines ) in two cities; and the Summer Camp for Young Men on Gender Issues which is their effort in addressing the "demand side" of prostitution.
CATW-AP shall conduct about three more trainings for young men, ages ranging from 16-19 years old coming from the different parts of the country and from the private and public schools, but including out of school youth. Aside from Education, they also work on Campaigns, Networking and Policy Advocacy.
