Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
The issue of sexual exploitation is a global one and has been highlighted by a number of court cases in recent times. Young people are targeted by predators, regardless of their demography, culture or gender. We believe that this project can raise awareness and help young people to see the difference between abusive and healthy relationships, avoid the traps, be aware of dangers, feel confident to contact authorities and, for those who have become entrapped, provide hope.
The Programme will be delivered by our team alongside networks all over the UK such as Azalea, Esteem, Lovewise, NWG, Love146 and Stop the Traffik, and uses the film Seeing Grace as well as discussion and immersive, interactive activities to explore and find solutions to some of the issues raised in the film, which include:
• The reasons behind choices teenagers make about their sexual activities
• Peer influence (positive and negative)
• Issues surrounding friendship, love and exploitation/abuse
• Vulnerability and susceptibility to exploitation
• Gangs – their influence and modus operandi
• Consumerism and its effect on relationships and young people
• The impact of adult support and boundaries on young people and their resulting level of vulnerability
• The effect of bullying or a fear-prevalent environment on choices young people make.
Young people respond well to a narrative through a medium that they are very familiar with, that will impact both emotionally and educationally.
Your donation, however small, can help us to make this important film and educational resource available to thousands of young people in the UK and abroad! We need to fund a part-time worker to design the content of this programme and develop current and new partnerships, as well as train up professionals and church workers to use this resource.
