We produce awareness raising materials, conducted workshops, make presentation and engage government and civil society structures to prevent and combat trafficking in children. Trafficking in persons is a growing and serious global problem. In South Africa more and more cases of trafficking in persons, especial women and children are identified and prosecuted. Unfortunately we do not know the true extent of trafficking in children. However identified cases indicates that children are trafficked for sexual exploitation and labour exploitation. Case of force marriages, harvesting of body parts and illegal adoption have also been reported.
We advocate for the establishment of an independent autonomous human rights monitoring instrument for children through awareness, education and dialogue with government and civil society role-players.
Be Molo’ has been developed as a campaign message to all the people who have been helped by Molo in their youth. They are now part of a bigger caring community that continues today as a legacy of Molo Songololo’s work with children. #bemolo is more than just a pay off, its an attitude and a ‘way of being’ that we want to express. ‘Be Molo’ creates a sense of purpose based on our 3 principles: Care, Share, Act 1. To express how we continue to care about a childs well being and rights 2. To help children and adults to share their experiences - both in stories and through social media 3. To actively participate in the fundraising and programs around the 40years celebration.
