All-Ukranian Network on the Struggle against CSEC
The All-Ukrainian Network- La Strada, is comprised of 20 organisations from government, non-governmental and private sectors, and one individual member. They work on the prevention of CSEC and child trafficking as well as the protection, rehabilitation and reintegration of child victims of CSEC. The network is also developing the National Programme on Trafficking Prevention and the National Plan of Action of Realisation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child with the Government.
The group works to raise awareness on child trafficking by taking a participatory approach and encouraging the involvement of youth in the development and implementation of programmes. Youth-led activities include peer education on child trafficking prevention, gender interactive theatre performed by youths in city streets, and prevention related events in schools. The All-Ukrainian Network will implement the YPP in the three regions — Kiev, Odessa and Simferopol — which are particularly at risk as origins for cross-border child trafficking and destinations of domestic trafficking.
