On the Right Track

Organization: Childhood Brazil
Project: On the Right Track
Location: Brazil
Target Group: Children who are victims of abuse and exploitation

Launched in 2006, this program aims at mobilizing governments, companies, and third-sector organizations to fight child and adolescent sexual exploitation on Brazilian roadways in a more effective manner. Over 1,230 companies signed the Corporate Pact affirming their commitment to the cause. One of its main strategies is the Continuous Education Project for Truck Drivers, which, by means of information, is working on education, raising awareness, and qualification of people who directly or indirectly work on the roads. The main goal is to reach the truck driver and transform him into a children and adolescents’ protection agent.
