TWO LITTLE GIRLS CAMPAIGN 

E-newsletter July 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 the United Kingdom

The United Kingdom (UK) is a source, transit and destination country for men, women and children who are subjected to sex trafficking and forced labour, including domestic servitude. Most foreign trafficking victims come from Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe. Funded generously by Comic Relief and the Tudor Trust, Two Little Girls has been used widely across the UK since 2009 to raise awareness of the issues associated with sex trafficking as well as to inform the public on trafficking from source countries across Eastern Europe. There have been many great outcomes and achievements in the UK which have seen the film being used by different stakeholders including the Metropolitan police in training courses, the UK Department of Health as part of their e-learning module on identifying and supporting victims of human trafficking aimed at healthcare professionals, a variety of organisations in the charity sector in their anti-trafficking training, youth and school work and the film is shown regularly on the Community Channel (available to 16.5 million digital households in the UK). View more of the campaign's UK achievements to date here... 

Two Little Girls Transnistria Campaign 2013

Transnistria is a sliver of land at Ukraine’s Western border. This disputed Moldovan territory has operated for almost two decades as a de facto independent state. Transnistria remains a territory with specific post-soviet features: extreme poverty, high-rated unemployment, low level of education (especially in the countryside), widespread cases of domestic violence and abuse, and social and political uncertainty. Consequences of migration, both legal and illegal, lead to negative manifestations in the field of economy and social life. All these conditions act as push factors for illegal migration, a phenomenon that feeds people-smuggling and trafficking. Two Little Girls is pleased to announce the launch of the campaign in Transnistria by lead partner NGO Interaction, a non-governmental organisation that works in Transnistria to promote gender equality and fight trafficking in human beings, to encourage individuality, creativity and development of critical thinking skills of children, and to build civic society by facilitating cooperation between non-governmental organisations, initiative groups and other sectors of the society.  To follow the campaign please visit here....

Human Trafficking Generates Huge Profits 

Human trafficking generates huge profits, but legislation falls short on confiscating the cash and prosecuting ringleaders. All too often slavery in some of its more contemporary manifestations – human trafficking, the exploitation of migrant workers, the buying and selling of women and girls into the sex trade – is considered a labour or human rights issue. Ultimately, though, modern-day slavery is a booming economy – a thriving business in human life. Read full article here ...
