UNICEF’s role UNICEF’s global effort to combat child trafficking focuses on building a protective environment for children – a safety net of interconnected elements designed to safeguard children from violence, exploitation and abuse. Children can be shielded from trafficking when: Governments are truly committed to child protection. Attitudes and prejudices that facilitate or lead to abuses are challenged or changed. Media and civil society openly confront exploitation, abuse and violence. Protective laws are in place and consistently enforced. Children have the information to protect themselves from abuse and exploitation. All those who interact with children —teachers, parents and religious leaders alike— know how to recognize and respond to exploitation. Proper monitoring is in place to identify victims of exploitation and abuse. Services for victims of exploitation are available without discrimination. UNICEF programmes to curb child trafficking focus on poverty reduction, education and life skills, addressing discriminatory attitudes and practices, the strengthening of existing laws and implementation and monitoring of international conventions, and helping children who have been trafficked to re-enter society.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
