Not One More Victim: The Urgent Need for Peer-to-Peer Education in Schools



Child trafficking is a pervasive issue that affects millions of children around the world. The need for effective prevention is urgent, and education is key. At Partner Against Child Trafficking (PACT), we believe in the power of peer-to-peer education to prevent child trafficking and exploitation. In this blog post, we will explore the urgent need for peer-to-peer education in schools and how PACT is working to make a real difference in the lives of vulnerable children.


The Scale of the Problem

Child trafficking is a global problem that affects millions of children. In the United States alone, it is estimated that there are 100,000 to 300,000 children at risk of commercial sexual exploitation each year. These statistics highlight the need for urgent action to prevent child trafficking and exploitation.


Why Peer-to-Peer Education is Essential

Peer-to-peer education is an effective approach to preventing child trafficking and exploitation because it empowers young people to recognize the signs of trafficking and take action to prevent it. By educating young people about the risks of trafficking and exploitation, we can create a culture of awareness and prevention that can help to protect vulnerable children.


The Role of Schools in Preventing Child Trafficking

Schools play a crucial role in preventing child trafficking and exploitation. By providing students with access to peer-to-peer education programs, schools can help to equip young people with the knowledge and skills they need to recognize and prevent trafficking and exploitation. Schools can also play a key role in raising awareness about the issue and encouraging students to take action to prevent it.


How PACT is Supporting Peer-to-Peer Education in Schools

At PACT, we are committed to providing resources and education to schools to help prevent child trafficking and exploitation. Our peer-to-peer education programs are designed to be interactive, culturally relevant, and available online 24/7, making them accessible to students around the world. Through our programs, we aim to empower young people to become agents of change in their communities and to create a culture of awareness and prevention.
