Objectives and target audience
– Continuing and enlarging the project’s namesake campaign.
– Sharing information with girls and women at risk about sexual exploitation, ways of identifying its solicitation, ways of reporting and confronting it.
– Strengthening of coordination and local networks that confront human trafficking related to sexual exploitation of girls and women.
– Revision and reproduction of informative campaign material
– Training of multiplicators
– Dissemination and multiplying of information
According to the organization, the trafficking of women and girls for sexual exploitation doesn’t just involve commercial exploitation, but also gender exploitation, which reflects the scenario of structural inequality in Brazilian society. That scenario includes class, gender and race dominations. The Rio de Janeiro metropolitan region has suffered transformations due to mega-projects and events, which has accentuated the commercialization of cities and the fragility of public services. In this context, adolescents and youth become even more vulnerable to sexual exploitation and other forms of violence.
