TWO LITTLE GIRLS CAMPAIGN 

E-newsletter March 2013

Campaign Highlights and News on Trafficking

Two Little Girls is a three minute animated film spearheading an anti sex-trafficking campaign in 13 East European countries that began in January 2009 and will continue into 2014. The aim of the campaign is to warn young women of the dangers of being persuaded to travel abroad with false promises of employment, only to find themselves sold into prostitution, consequently enduring years of untold cruelty. This campaign acts both as a powerful and accessible tool for the prevention of trafficking, as well as for increasing public awareness about this very complex and difficult subject.

Two Little Girls in Lithuania

In 2012, NGOs estimated that 40 percent of identified Lithuanian trafficking victims are women and girls subjected to sex trafficking within the country. This is why we are so pleased to have Save the Children Lithuania working as the Two Little Girls lead partner in Lithuania who are using the film in workshops with some of the most vulnerable groups to trafficking such as children in care institutions. During December 2012, Two Little Girls was broadcast regularly throughout the whole month on 5 regional TV stations with an accumulated viewing audience of approximately 730,000 people. The Lithuanian TLG campaign was given a reception at the British Embassy in January 2013 with representatives from the government, aid agencies and NGOs in attendance. The launch received extensive media coverage with 13 websites running features on the campaign. British Ambassador for Lithuania David Hunt (pictured above) is a keen advocate of the project and very serious about the issue of Human Trafficking in Lithuania.

Two Little Girls in Bosnia

Victims from Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) are subjected to sex trafficking and forced labour in Azerbaijan, Slovenia, Croatia, Spain and other countries in Europe. Two Little Girls lead partner in Bosnia, Association XY, an NGO dedicated to improving and promoting sexual and reproductive health, has been an outstanding example of how much can be achieved with a visually inspired film campaign. The launch event of the TLG campaign and premier screening of the film was promoted as part of the PR activities for World Contraception Day. As a result 30 different radio and TV stations mentioned TLG as well as print and online media. A press launch in the Autumn attended by H.E. Patrick Moon, Ambassador of USA in BiH (as pictured) held in Sarajevo to mark EU Anti- Trafficking Day was attended by up to 100 people. 150 education sector professionals, 150 peer educators, 30 medical staff, 30 prosecutors and judges, and 400 journalists and journalism students have been trained in BiH to use Two Little Girls in their work. The campaign will launch its second phase in March 2013.

Could the UK learn from Romania?

BBC Inside Out investigates the rise of trafficking in women across UK borders to work in the sex trade and asks if Romania can provide lessons for the UK. Reporter Emma Thomas visits Romania to see how it is cracking down on traffickers and asks if the UK can learn from its legislation and tougher sentencing. Romanians represent a significant source of trafficking victims in Europe. Romanian criminal groups use sophisticated methods including the transportation of victims to different countries in Europe in order to test law enforcement weaknesses in each.
