“If someone would have talked about safe touch and unsafe touch, I believe I would have spoken up as a child and not been victimized over and over again for years’ – Erin Merryn
The phenomenon of child sexual abuse appears to become a matter of growing concern in Europe according to a recent research by the EU Commission. Children are vulnerable, and often ashamed and afraid to report those incidents, hence most of them goes undetected.
STOP- Stop Child Abuse Through Effective Training and Augmented Reality is an Erasmus+ KA2 Youth Project, which aims to provide an innovative solution to the adverse childhood experiences that affect youth all around Europe.
To achieve this goal, the project aims to create an innovative learning path targeting youth workers to improve their practices and also to provide them with an Augmented Reality tool to be used for child sexual abuse prevention.
Emphasys Centre is proud to be part of this powerful team of organizations and professionals who are eager to support the fight against child sexual abuse. The kick-off meeting of the STOP project was organized by the coordinator of the project ‘Step by Step’ Parent’s Association in Zagreb, Croatia. We would like to thank the hosting organization for their great hospitality, and the rest of the partners for the excellent collaboration: European Digital Learning Network (Italy), Kentro Merimnas Oikogeneias kai Paidiou (KMOP) (Greece), Universidad of Valladolid (Spain), Association Deses-3 (Spain) and CCS Digital Education Ltd (Ireland).
