Training and raising awareness of professionals and social educators to fight and protect children from their exploitation in prostitution.

Context

Child prostitution, or the sexual exploitation of children is a poorly understood and little-known phenomenon. Covering a variety of profiles, social background, nationality, gender and territory, when it occurs, it leaves families and professionals in a bewildered situation. There are no statistics on this phenomenon in Europe and its invisibility or near invisibility among public institutions, social workers and education professionals in Europe, is a major issue. In this context, the sharing of information and awareness-raising initiatives is the starting point for effective action  against children’s sexual exploitation.

Objectives

  • To better understand and raise awareness on the phenomenon of the sexual exploitation of children.
  • To produce capacity building materials for professionals of the educational community on prevention and support mechanisms to contrast the sexual exploitation of children.
  • To enhance the knowledge of professionals in France, Spain, Greece and Italy to contrast the sexual exploitation of children.

Activities
