Kick-Off Event for EU-Funded Project to Protect Children: 'Prevent & Protect Through Support'
On 12-13 October 2022, Protect Children Executive Director, Nina Vaaranen-Valkonen joined the kick-off in Warsaw, Poland, of a new EU-funded project: '2PS: Prevent & Protect Through Support' to tackle child sexual exploitation. The project led by the Polish Platform for Homeland Security.
Protect Children joins the multidisciplinary consortium of 20 European partners, including law enforcement, non-governmental organisations, and research institutions, all dedicated to preventing child sexual exploitation and abuse.
In response to the alarming growth of reports of child sexual exploitation and abuse globally, the three-year project aims to prevent susceptible and probable offenders from committing crimes and victimising children, in order to stop the harms before they occur.
