Training for young people was conducted by the Head of Programs and Projects of the international organization A21 Kateryna YAKOVENKO.

Addressing an audience, she remarked: “Officially, slavery has been abolished and recognized as a shameful phenomenon that has no place in modern society. But, unfortunately, it continues to exist and went underground, so it is much harder to fight. Our organization is an abolitionist movement of the XXI century and we oppose slavery and injustice”.

According to International Organization for Migration, more than 260,000 Ukrainians have suffered from modern-day slavery over the past thirty years. Nevertheless, many of our citizens are convinced that they will not fall victim to human trafficking. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Everyone can fall into the net of criminals - regardless of age, gender or social status. So, it’s extremely important to understand how to protect yourself from risky situations and how to help those who have suffered from human trafficking.

“We initiated such thematic trainings to show that the problem of modern slavery is much broader and is not limited by sexual exploitation, as most believe”, explains Oleksandra ZAKHAROVA, Head of LvSUIA Department of Actualization of Education and Practical Training.
