OVER 800 YOUTHS JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING
WOTCLEF Programme Officer, Ms Chinwe Nwafor submitted that youths are increasingly vulnerable to the scourge because of their quest of better life abroad and enjoined them to be attentive as she introduced Egwurube, Samuel the Assistant Programme Officer to deliver his address.
Egwurube in his address painted multiple scenarios to illustrate the dangers, life conditions and impact of human trafficking, child labour and abuse on victims.
He solicited for support in the fight against the scourge by urging the corps members to “never again be silent, never again turn their eyes away from cases of human trafficking, child labour and abuse, never again exploit a person especially women and children.”
Futhermore, he tasked the youth corps members to serve as advocates and take the campaign from one child, to one youth, to one village, to one town till it’s eradicated and summarized with the statement “Education is a great power; with great power comes great responsibility.”
In solidarity, the corps members pledged their support for the cause by raising their caps.
