RECOGNIZE IT IN DUE TIME -  prevention program at schools against being victimized by human trafficking, prostitution and domestic violence

 

RECOGNIZE IT IN DUE TIME – prevention activities in schools. Hungarian Interchurch Aid organized awareness raising, sensitizing prevention programs to prevent students from becoming victimized in the field of human trafficking, prostitution and domestic violence. 80 classes of more than 30 schools joined the program and 551 students in 2013 and 1500 students in 2014 took part in it. Objectives included prevention of victimization, awareness raising, sensitizing for students; provision of information and training for experts to enable them to hold prevention lectures. Sensitizing knowledge- and information-transfer was also provided to teachers of the affected schools.

Program elements:
