Specific Approaches of the Project

 

Training of 25 young people as peer supporters of victims of trafficking and CSEC followed by the creation and management of peer support schemes by the trained youth. Secondary training will be developed incrementally, with a further 10 young people being trained in the second year. This will ensure sustainability and allows the potential for implementing Peer Training of Trainers programs in the future.

Training of 25 young people in lobbying and advocacy techniques, to increase their ability to influence local bodies in terms of prevention, protection and rehabilitation of commercially sexually exploited children. They will then be able to apply their new skills by planning and conducting campaigns to raise awareness and lobby for policy change. These young people will become leaders in local and national campaigns designed to ensure appropriate policy and strategies to prevent the commercial sexual exploitation of all children and to assure their right to protection and rehabilitation services.

To establish a Peer Support Scheme in 12 schools in as well as within 12 welfare institutions working with victims of CSEC, focusing in particular on shelters, orphanages and rescue homes. Traumatised victims of trafficking often have little trust in adults. Peer supporters will befriend, mentor and listen to young people, thereby reducing their sense of isolation and allowing them to explore their experiences. Over the next three years peer supporters will work with local schools and welfare providers to develop programs of support in targeted places, particularly in schools. Working in partnership with the education system will ensure that thousands of marginalized and exploited children will have immediate access to systems of peer support and protection. Through their experiences of working with such young people, peer supporters will come to know the real needs of exploited victims and will be able to inform the development of appropriate rehabilitation and repatriation services.

Training of 20 caregivers in techniques for the appropriate psycho-social recovery of trafficked children for ensuring the long-term recovery of victims. Through participatory methodology, they will develop models of good practice in care provision, including shelters, outreach services, therapeutic group work and informal education programs. These caregivers will therefore be able to: provide improved standards of direct care to the victims they work with; act as adult mentors to support young peer supporters and child advocates; and form networks of direct service providers to ensure that the reform campaigns reflect the real needs of victims of CSEC.

Awareness campaigns for the dissemination of information on the dangers of CSEC, HIV/AIDS prevention and the rights of children, in particular street children, tribal children, children with mental and physical disabilities and HIV-positive children. This will involve presentations, focus groups and special events, particularly in schools. Materials will be created to ensure that the campaign is visual and child-friendly. The campaign will also target local communities, and families will learn to recognize the tactics employed by traffickers, will be alerted to the danger signs and will look at strategies for protecting themselves.

Support to child and youth groups’ and networks’ initiatives through a Youth Micro-Project Scheme. The Micro-Project Scheme will enable disadvantaged children and young people in the region to develop and implement initiatives, which they themselves have identified as priorities. To promote legislative reform and improvement of law enforcement mechanisms related to CSEC as necessary, in the country. The strong lobbying networks formed by, and for, young people will ultimately contribute greatly to the long-term legal protection of all children in the country.
