«Let’s fight with TRAFFIC!» brings together 20 youth workers from five countries to make «common ground» against Trafficking on human beings. The project is coordinated by the Romanian Red Cross – Suceava Branch and has four NGOs, from European countries, as partners.
Human trafficking through its forms, sexual exploitation, forced labor, begging, etc., is a phenomenon encountered in poor countries as a recruiting place, as well as in developed countries as a place of sale and exploitation. Croatia, Bulgaria, Italy and Spain, countries that are partners of the project, have a higher incidence of human trafficking, over 1000 victims annually.
This project has as main activity a training course of 20 youth workers which will be held during seven days in Suceava – Gura Humorului area. During this training, the youth workers will gain knowledge on the specific of human trafficking, its forms, the victim’s and trafficant’s profile. Much more, they will develop a common action plan by creating an information campaignwhich will be conducted in the organizations where they come from. The training course will take place through non-formal education methods.
«Let’s fight with TRAFFIC!» has as main objectives to provide youth workers the knowledge about human trafficking and to develop skills in working with young vulnerable people. Furthermore, we want to draw an alarm signal over the danger that young people from disadvantaged communities are subjected and, ultimately, to prevent vulnerable communities about the dangers they are exposed to. Main topics of TC – specifics of human trafficking – how to recognize human trafficking activities – profile of trafficker – profile of victim – working methods with young persons at risk
