Ewelle’s step-by-step plan against child trafficking

Ewelle’s step-by-step plan against child trafficking

“I hope to see young people lead the creation of a free, safe and educated world.”

What is the problem? 
Every single day, children all around the world fall victim to violence. In Liberia, this happens to almost half of the young people under 15. Child trafficking is one form of violence in which children are sold and forced into prostitution, forced to work, or enslaved. Many children in Ewelle’s community suffer from child trafficking.

Ewelle believes that children and youths should grow up in an environment free of violence and child trafficking and he has decided to take action!

What is Ewelle’s solution?
His solution consists of three steps:

  1. KNOW: the first step is to inform children, youths & adults so that they understand what child trafficking is, what its risks are and how children fall victim to it.
  2. CONNECT: once the facts have been reviewed, the emotional side of child trafficking will also be discussed. Survivors will share their experiences with participants.
  3. MOBILIZE & INFLUENCE: the final step is encouraging the community to take action against child trafficking. And motivate them to encourage others in turn. Ewelle will organize a protest march, the Walk of Freedom, to support this goal. He hopes that some 100 to 200 young people between the ages of 17 to 25 will participate.

What is the goal?
Ewelle hopes to end child trafficking in at least one area of the city.

How does Ewelle work? 
Ewelle leads his own project with support from the organization he works for. He will invite people to his meetings through e-mail, social media and telephone calls. He will also visit people at home. The meetings will take place at the university.

Who does Ewelle need?  

  • ANPPCAN (African Network for the Prevention and Protection Against Child Abuse and Neglect) for technical support of the project.
  • Members of the 100 Million Campaign Group. Read more about the group here
  • Ewelle wants to talk with city leaders and organizations. He hopes to win their support in the battle against child trafficking.

What does Ewelle need?  

  • Training material like posters, videos, and toolkits.
  • T-shirts for the Walk of Freedom.
