Thousands of young people around the world are part of the fight to eliminate the commercial sexual exploitation of children. Through ECPAT International and its Youth Partnership Project child survivors and at-risk youth are empowered to create change in their communities.
On International Youth Day – August 12th, show your support to these courageous youth by reading about their experiences and achievements in protecting other children in their communities and around the world in ECPAT International’s Youth Journal.
The articles demonstrate the power of young people to design and lead awareness raising and advocacy activities against sexual exploitation. They also provide examples of how linkages can be made between participation and protection of youth, especially their increased capacities to assess risks, promote self-protection and to reach out and assist their peers.
The Youth Partnership Project has supported hundreds of children and youth to make the transition from ‘victim’ to ‘survivor’.
