SPEAK UP: Tell the Romanian Government to teach kids about Human Trafficking
Romania is the biggest source of sex trafficking survivors in Europe. 78% of sex trafficking survivors rescued in Europe are from either Romania or Moldova. In a recent operation to free enslaved women in the UK, 86% of the women trapped were Romanian.
Thousands of Romanians are enslaved at any given moment. Even worse, 50% of them are children.
While many Romanians know about trafficking, most do not know how it happens. There are few materials to teach them how to protect themselves.
Uncaged began to bring holistic healing to trafficking survivors worldwide. To date, over 700 survivors have begun our healing journey with our team.
After walking with so many survivors, we know how traffickers operate. We're ready to stop them.
SPEAK UP is one of our core initiatives in collaboration with others. It teaches school-age children how to protect themselves from becoming victims of trafficking.
Our team has adapted the curriculum for Romanians. Now, we just need the Romanian government to use it.
you can help
Right now, Romania knows that it has to make significant changes if it wants to end human trafficking. For the third year in a row, it was flagged as a Tier 2 watch-list country on the trafficking in persons report. That means the international community wants Romania to do more.
Our contacts in the government know the time to take action is now. They have asked us to roll out the SPEAK UP curriculum, and we are ready to do it. What we need now is momentum.
That's where people like you come in.
We want to yell loudly and clearly that you want SPEAK UP to be a part of the national Romanian Educational System. Every parent and child in Romania deserves the chance to learn how trafficking works and how they can stop it before it happens.

Today, I am speaking up to show my support for the SPEAK UP curriculum to prevent trafficking. I wholeheartedly believe that this curriculum should be offered to families and children as part of the Romanian Educational System.
