2. The Problem: 

The problem I would like to work on is child trafficking for the purpose of exploitation of any kind. For 30 years, Romania has been the country that exports the most trafficked persons from the European Union. By definition, trafficking means "the recruitment, transport, transfer, accommodation or reception of a person by threat, violence or other form of coercion for the purpose of the exploitation of that person", in which children and young people are sexually exploited or enslaved by traffickers.

3. The Solution:

My project will consist of an online seminar, where I will make a short PowerPoint presentation on this issue, after which we will continue with a game in which each person will tell a story about any type of abuse experienced or known. During the meeting I will bring a girl who has been trafficked 3 times, she will talk more precisely about human / child trafficking and she will answer the participants' questions.

4. Beneficiaries:

10  teenagers, aged 16-18 years old, will be a part of the online workshop.

5. Team:  

I will do the activity all by myself.

6. Objective:

I want to inform 10 teenagers about the danger of child trafficking, by organizing an online seminar with a guest who faced this problem as a child.

7. Project duration:  

2 month (March - April 2021)
