Stop Sex Trafficking of Children & Young People campaign

Human trafficking is the third largest and fastest growing criminal activity in the world. It is estimated that approximately 1.2 million children are trafficked domestically or across borders each year. In order to end this serious crime and abuse of children and young people, ECPAT and The Body Shop have formed a unique partnership to launch the global ‘Stop Sex Trafficking of Children & Young People campaign.”

The campaign has the following three basic goals:

1. To mobilise concrete and long-term change and action against trafficking of children for sexual exploitation;
2. To ensure that public awareness turns into a global voice that is heard by ordinary people and those with power to make the changes needed to better protect children and young people from sex trafficking; and
3. To use the contributions raised, for prevention and awareness programmes for children and young people at risk, and to bring immediate relief to children who have been affected.

ECPAT and The Body Shop encourage to join the campaign which calls for measures that will ensure the protection of children from these crimes and which will support concrete interventions for children and young people.
