Affecting nearly ever country in the world, one of the most important global social issues impacting youth and their future is child trafficking.  A global enterprise worth in the region of US$ 32 billion, organizations like the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes (UNODC) report that approximately 800,000 people are trafficked annually, and 2.4 million people living as modern day slaves.

Through education, the use of technology, and cultural understanding, the US-Cameroon Child Trafficking Awareness Project empowers youth in Atlanta, GA and Bamenda, Cameroon to become more aware of the problem of child trafficking, understand how culture and community impact it, and collaborate with one another to minimize this epidemic.

Partners:

  • Global Welfare Association
  • YCW Cameroon
  • Young, Fit, and Fly
  • Street Grace/Hope Store

30 Youth participated in US-Cameroon Child Trafficking Awareness Project, many more benefiting from US-Cameroon Child Trafficking Awareness youth outreach and volunteer activities in Atlanta and Bamenda. Activities include volunteering at The Hope Store in Roswell, GA, where profits go towards aiding trafficked & abused children in the Atlanta area; and sharing informational materials about child trafficking, such as posters, flyers, brochures with youth in Bamenda, Cameroon.
