THEATRE AGAINST TRAFFICKING

“MANY PEOPLE ARE AFRAID to come to West Point. A lot of former rebel soldiers live here, and people are poor. There are many children here who have been kidnapped from villages in the country and brought here to work for someone, begging or selling different things. They don’t go to school and are treated like slaves. Poor girls are exploited by older men. Sometimes the man offers to pay the girl’s school fees, but only if he can exploit her. We do street theatre to help people understand that it’s wrong to treat children like that. YAI supports us because they believe it’s important for people to know what’s happening to children. People like our plays and discussions often arise afterwards.”
