The Face of Love

This project was focused on children and adolescents aged 12 to 26 growing up in institutional care or in the care of social and legal protection bodies and was aimed at preventing violence and human trafficking. We also wanted to establish long-term interdisciplinary collaboration between the institutions involved in this issue.

The project has helped us organise 104 meetings with a total of 155 young people from the target group. We have created a prevention programme and a training module, published a handbook of best practices and preventive posters, and made banners and a film. We have trained 15 students, graduates and instructors.

We have collaborated with the counselling centre Magdala, which tackles domestic violence and trafficking; we have also collaborated with the Prague College of Psychosocial Studies, children’s homes and youth secure centres in the Czech Republic, NGOs and the public administration. We have helped to build better awareness of these issues.
