Child trafficking public service announcement campaign.
As children grow up they meet a lot of people in their lives. Some good and some not so good. Kids have a tendency to trust and move forward with relationships after they meet someone. Who can blame them though, we teach them to not talk to strangers but a lot of child traffickers have known their victims for a while. A lot of traffickers take advantage of a child's ignorance and trust, praying on their hopes and dreams.
To make kids understand that there's always underlying intentions. To see things in a different perspective. The goal is not to make kids afraid of meeting people but to always question the persons intentions and whats happening in the long run.
We created three posters, one billboard, and one social media post. Through research we made something these kids (10-18) could hopefully understand. We wanted to show how there's two sides to every story and how kids should question every relationship.
Child traffickers gain their advantage by manipulating their targets with fake promises. They are incredibly good at seeking lonely or sad individuals that are in trouble or need help. They use this vulnerability to their advantage and create a fake friendship. During this they try to create separation from your loves ones saying phrases like “they don’t understand you” or “you’re better off without them.”
They will find their ideal target for whatever they plan on doing. Whether they're in sex, organ or labor trafficking they will seek a kid out.
They tend to promise things that are unreasonable and pull at your heartstrings. This gets the child’s emotions going and they tend to believe them.
Overtime they will create bonds. They will buy them things have conversations that seem harmless and seem like a mentor.
