Dear Friends,
We are delighted to inform you that the Youth Against Human Trafficking facebook page has now been officially published!

This page was created in response to the feedback we have been receiving throughout the years from young people of 15-24 years’ wanting to become more involved in raising awareness and taking action against this illicit trade and terrible violation of human rights.
We hope that Youth Against Human Trafficking will therefore be their platform to express themselves and share their thoughts about ending human trafficking. We also hope that through this page, young people will be able to organize the activities they wish to explore by using the communication channel they like best: social media.
The youth have always been an important component of our activities since the creation of End Human Trafficking Now (EHTN) in 2006. We have tried to integrate a young people’s section in all our events and will continue to do so in the future. This is not only a two-way learning experience but also an opportunity to hear what young people have to say, and take their thoughts and concerns on board.
We look forward to seeing how young people will use this facebook platform to promote peace, human security and zero tolerance to human trafficking. To these activists of today and leaders of tomorrow, we would like to reiterate the following message:
“This page is for YOU to SPEAK OUT against human trafficking! So please invite all your friends and make change happen!!”
With best regards,
Senior Advocacy & Communications Manager
End Human Trafficking Now

With Malala Yusafzai and her father, at their place, in Birmingham.

27/05/2015 - International day for missing and exploited children.

After the huge gala in New York on the 7th of may, ICMEC is continuing the campaign against sexual exploitation of children all over the world. Our next meeting will be in Greece, Athens, where the phenomenon is very important. The greek association is working with us in the same way.

Don’t let the future of children slip away was the main message of this year’s International Missing Children’s Day - Athens, 25 May 2015
On the occasion of the International Missing Children’s Day, 25 May, “The Smile of the Child” – for one more year- sent a message of hope and solidarity to the parents affected by child disappearances and raised awareness about the problem through a variety of events in Athens and Thessaloniki, Greece in support of the International Missing Children’s day.
During a press interview hosted in Athens official national data on missing children was presented by “The Smile of the Child”, member NGO of Missing Children Europe and the Greek Police authorities, while revealing international data was also shared during the event. Among the participants were the Ambassador of Romania to Greece, Mr. Lucian FĂTU, a representative from the Ministry of Health and representatives from the Greek Police, the Fire Service, the Coast Guard and the Army as well as from organizations and public and private actors involved.
From January 2014 to April 2015 the European Hotline for Missing Children 116000 received 9.944 calls and 150 requests of support in searches for missing children. “The Smile of the Child” handled 118 cases of missing children out of which 104 children (90% of the cases) were found. For 5 cases the Amber Alert Hellas was activated. In the vast majority of these cases missing children were between 13 to 18 years old.
The President of “The Smile of the Child” and Board Member of the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC) Costas Giannopoulos  put emphasis on the fact that the majority of missing children cases were teen runaways due to problems in the family environment. He also underlined the importance of prevention as well as the crucial role of mobilizing immediately all the actors involved in the case of a missing child.
In 2014 the Greek Police handled 369 missing children cases and located 325 children, while during the first 4 months of 2015 the authorities handled 125 missing cases and 91 children have been found. According to the representative of Missing Persons Unit of the Greek Police in Greece there are no cases of missing children for the purposes of sexual exploitation and removal of organs or abductions from third persons.
According to the European Commission 250,000 children are reported missing every year in the European Union, 1 child every 2 minutes while according to data from Missing Children Europe, the European federation representing 30 organizations in 24 countries, the phenomenon includes several categories of child disappearances, including parental abductions, runaways, missing unaccompanied migrant minors, criminal abductions and lost, injured or otherwise missing children. Only 2-5% of missing children cases reported involve third party criminal abductions and runaways make up 50% of missing children cases reported on the 116 000 hotlines.
In addition, new data released by Missing Children Europe on the European missing children hotline available through the telephone number 116 000 in 29 countries reveals a 200% increase in the number of calls received since 2012.
Awareness raising activities on the problem of missing children took place during the event with young children learning interactively through a Muppet show ways of staying safe. A full simulation of a search exercise for missing children was showcased with the participation of the Search and Rescue Volunteer Team “Thanasis Makris” of the Greek NGO and international certified rescue dogs accompanied by their handlers.
