General presentation of the project
Title:    Don’t Pay with Your Life – Protecting young girls from Edo State from THB
Presentation of GPI
Girls’ Power Initiative (GPI) is a registered not for profit, youth development organization founded in 1993 to intervene in the socialization of girls for the realization of a society where women are visible and valued actors. Children and young women are the primary beneficiaries of GPI programs while adult males and other stakeholders are secondary beneficiaries as they are targeted mostly within the context of influencing them to become supportive of child protection and gender equality initiatives.

GPI with centres in Cross River, Akwa Ibom, Edo, Delta, Bayelsa States and a Liaison Office in FCT, has become a reference point and leading organization in: Comprehensive Sexuality Education and capacity building; advocacy for policy change on issues affecting girls and women; community based integrated interventions to address children on the move, human trafficking, violence against girls and women, HIV/AIDS, and other adolescent health issues, counseling, referrals and provision of services for children and young women; research and documentation to advance their cause.

Context of the call
Facing the growing number of very young victims of trafficking from Nigeria to Europe where they are exploited in prostitution,  “Don’t pay with you life!” program, aims at ending trafficking in human beings (SDG 16), and more specifically protecting girls and young women from Edo State in Nigeria from THB.

Coordinated by ECPAT France, the program is developed by an alliance of operational partners (GPI, JDPCI and IFRA). It is expected to be co-financed by the French Development Agency (AFD).

From the information collected by NGOs working in the field with Nigerian girls and women, women’s groups involved in trafficking are using Facebook to give a positive image of migration in Europe. They show themselves with nice clothes and accessories and include comments to make the readers think that they make a lot of money and have a happy and “rich” life in Europe.

In order to correct these false messages spread through Facebook, ECPAT France has created a Facebook page to disseminate information, articles and videos on the real situation of the girls who migrate. The Facebook page created especially for the campaign will target girls aged 13 to 25 years in Edo State who are the primary population that will benefit from the campaign.
