Educate 3000 children against human trafficking

by Alliance Anti Trafic Vetted since 2018

Summary

Do you think education can avoid people becoming victims? For the last 15 years AAT has worked with victims of human trafficking, and we understand that educating young people is the most important factor in preventing harms. Education is empowerment. So far AAT has educated 60,000 children in Vietnam. Now we will reach 3000 more to raise awareness among vulnerable populations and empower them to protect themselves from human trafficking, abuse and other social harms. Prevention is the solution.

Challenge

Sexual exploitation, abuse and human trafficking remain substantial problems in Vietnam. There is limited knowledge of sexual health and human rights because reproductive health and sex-related risk prevention are considered a taboo and not discussed with children. There is a gap in the education system when it comes to these subjects, and so children continue to be vulnerable to sex crimes, human trafficking and other harms at an early age and as young adults. This mentality needs to change.

Solution

Educate and raise awareness among youth, parents, educators and local government officials. We developed our own method and materials appropriate to Vietnam. An AAT specialist directly trains teachers, headmasters and local partners, who then train students aged 12-13 years. The training covers early pregnancy, abortion, reproductive health, drugs, abuse, exploitation, early marriage, incest, gender and human rights, so that the girls and boys learn together in an easy and comprehensive way.

Long-Term Impact

Having worked with victims for over 15 years, we know it is better to avoid the problem in the first place than to tackle the consequences. Giving the opportunity to learn issues considered taboo in Vietnam, and are real problems in the country, we can empower young people to make better choices. The ultimate goal is to encourage the government to adopt this subject at the national level at schools - which would potentially impact over 5 million students in Vietnam and reduce human trafficking.
