Action in Countries of Origin

Thursday 1 November 2007

Granting assistance to victims of trafficking in countries of destination makes sense only if a vigorous information and awareness campaign is conducted simultaneously in the countries of origin. With its experience in the prevention of prostitution, in international action and with the support of various partners, the delegation of Mouvement du Nid (Hauts-de-Seine) has engaged in an extensive program of solidarity aimed at supporting campaigns of prevention in Africa.

The meeting in several cities in France of many prostitutes from Cameroon led the Mouvement du Nid to take its first step toward preventing trafficking in this country. The overall project is to unite local affiliates around a wide public awareness campaign to inform young people and train social workers.

It aims to use all possible approaches towards the government until a comprehensive policy for the prevention of prostitution and rehabilitation of prostitutes is established. Specific information campaigns will be simultaneously conducted in France with the African community and its associations of solidarity.

The first step, in 2006, aimed to form a network of affiliates in Cameroon. Very quickly, the need for a prevention tool for youth appeared essential to all partner organizations, as part of a campaign towards young Africans. The realization of a comic book has been in progress with the participation of an African designers’ association. This comic will first be released from the first half of 2008 to young people through a network of partner associations in Cameroon, and thereafter in other francophone African countries.
