The overall scope and ambition of our international work is to end child trafficking and sexual exploitation through enhanced cross-national coordination and collaboration in the fight against trafficking and sexual exploitation of children.
Our work is focused around three areas:
1. Building networks and empowering grassroots organizations working in this field
ChildX researches, selects and supports grassroots organizations dedicated to protecting children from trafficking and exploitation to scale their impact and sustainability. We build networks of organizations who complement each other to foster stronger national and international coordination and collaboration in this field, identifying synergies across nations and borders and facilitating joint advocacy to create durable solutions.
2. Awareness raising
ChildX seeks to increase knowledge about child trafficking in all public sectors in society, including on how to prevent and protect children, how to take action against those who abuse children as well as how to identify and support victims. ChildX does advocacy with key actors in the field both internationally and in Sweden through communication campaigns, events, issuing reports and by meeting and providing advice to policy makers.
ChildX lobbies decision-makers to improve legislation, policy and practice to prevent and protect children from trafficking and exploitation and to implement tougher actions against those who abuse children. We seek to ensure a child rights based approach in policy development and legislation, working with grassroots organizations and supporting them to have their voices heard in decision making processes related to child trafficking and child protection.
