TC: “Peer education approach in trafficking prevention”
The project “Peer education approach in trafficking prevention” (Youth in Action Programme Training course, Action 3.1) has been developed through the recognition that trafficking is becoming a more and more relevant problem in certain countries, and there is a lack of information about how destructive it can be for the society. A solution is highly needed in both countries of origin and destination which are affected by this issue.
The TC was focused on the peer education as a tool to work for trafficking prevention. It involved people from 23 organisations: 13 partners from Italy, Bulgaria, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Malta, Portugal, Romania and Spain, and 10 partners from the 7 countries of Eastern Europe and the Caucasus region: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldavia, Russian Federation and Ukraine.
