“Dont sell yourself!”
11 instances of human trafficking in Kyiv have been identified by law enforcement officers since the beginning of the year. There were only 7 registered for the whole of last year. The Central Department for Youth and Family believes this trend to be disturbing and is therefore planning an information campaign in September under the slogan “Dont sell yourself!”
Residents of Kyiv will have the chance to listen to a concert and become part of a volunteer network.
Senior Specialist for the Department Olena Yahova explains:
“We will be organizing a concert programme. There will be groups of volunteers handing out information leaflets and answering any questions about human trafficking and how to avoid becoming a victim. There will be quizzes, competitions, and performances by childrens groups. We are planning to set up a tent where people will be able to receive information and answers to their questions”.
