Love146 is excited to share the start of our new European Prevention program. The first project in this new program is the Love146 Cross Border Initiative!
This new prevention project is creative and cutting-edge response to the trafficking of youth in Europe through a pop culture magazine containing articles addressing issues that contribute to the vulnerability of young people.
The trafficking and exploitation of youth throughout Europe, especially from Eastern Europe is undeniably a cause for serious concern. This project seeks to address the factors contributing to the vulnerability of young people through a glossy pop culture magazine. In order to effectively impact the community 60% of each edition with be popular culture articles you would expect to find in western youth magazines and 40% of the articles will cover life and personal development issue, particularly issues which underpin why Eastern Europeans are vulnerable to trafficking. These subjects will include Domestic Violence, Gender Inequality, Economic Creativity and pressing issues such as sexual health and HIV. It is our hope that this creative and cutting-edge response will break a cycle of exploitation by empowering youth in their understanding of culture and the vast issues that contribute to trafficking and exploitation of young people.
