Complex Approach to the Problems of Human Trafficking in Panevezys Region, Lithuania
The main idea of the project “Complex Approach to the Problems of Human Trafficking in Panevezys Region, Lithuania” was to construct a united platform against human trafficking in the region with high criminality, poor local resources and weak cooperation.
Three concrete directions were chosen – a)victim support (95 adults and 18 children were supported in the course of the project) and training; b)consolidation of the professionals in the region (police officers, prosecutors, social workers, municipality officials, politicians, 190 persons in total), c)community training and awareness raising (a special programme “ SOS! The Dangers of Human Trafficking” was delivered in local schools, orphanages, youth centres, giving special attention to the remote places in the region).
The project started in October 2013 and it is still running.
