Erulkar, A., & Hailu, E. (2024).  Selam Medirashachin (Safe Arrival) Project: Addressing the risk of trafficking, violence, and sexual abuse among newly arriving migrant girls in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Brief. New York: Population Council.

With most migrants arriving by means of public buses, the project was located in the two largest bus stations in Addis Ababa: Autobus Terra and Lamberet. This project involved both research and intervention development to support the safety of migrant girls upon arrival.
