Cross-border Community-based Initiatives against trafficking in children in the Mekong Sub-Region
The purpose of this project is to reduce the incidence and impact of trafficking and abuse of the most vulnerable migrant children in the Mekong sub region, through participatory development of sustainable coping strategies grounded in Child Rights and through evidence-based advocacy at local, national and international levels.
This cross-border project was built on the participatory action research with migrant children and young persons living along border areas. Its basic principle is grounded on empowering of the children and young persons researched through out the whole process: data collection, analysing, feedback, action planning and implementation and assessing results of those actions and further data collection. Participatory action research is particularly powerful in addressing complex social problems such as trafficking because of its orientation toward redressing inequity and redistributing power.
