Thank you HIP HOP INTERNATIONAL ROMANIA and the wonderful HHI JUDGES who are the dance workshop leaders. The NO Project acknowledges your dignity, integrity and willingness to include awareness of human trafficking during your nationwide workshop tour of Romania. Your support is invaluable when you talk to young people, their parents and the studio owners about trafficking. Thank you.
Human traffickers recruit boys, girls, young men and women in Romania for both domestic and international destinations. Please see thenoproject.ro
Dancers and choreographers at a multi-media seminar with The NO Project, Istanbul Turkey. These top dancers can reach young people in different ways – beyond the four walls of a school classroom. Through dance, music, social media. Thank you everyone involved – great to present the seminar in a dance studio. Can't wait to see your new videos!
Love working with youth ambassadors. There are many reasons why The NO Project focuses on youth understanding of slavery and human trafficking. One important reason: young people influence each other. Parents, teachers and school textbooks have influence - but sometimes not as powerfully as another person the same age.(sorry about that adults – but it's often true.)
