Trafficking.ch - Together with Stephan Fuchs and his network of key players in Switzerland, Ogola Florence Anyango will gain in depth inside information of the life and tragedy of African women being enslaved in sexual exploitation in Switzerland.
She will speak to key players from Swiss NGOs and Police Force Units dealing on a cantonal and national level with the topic of forced prostitution and Human Trafficking. She will visit places of
crime and speak to the woman in brothels and on the street, as well as in hook up bars. She will report there tears and there fears.
Human trafficking is a major crime. Thousands of women, some men, even children are lured and sold into Europe’s territory and forced to pay back huge debts through prostitution. Raped and beaten, unseen by most of the public, a major crime is happening in Europe. Little of the "European Hell" is covered and told in Sub-Saharan newspapers. Therefore, media projects have the ability to take an important part in uncovering a crime against humanity. The output of such media projects is an in-depth research process in Europe and a series of publications in Sub-Saharan newspapers, magazines and on radio.
Kenyan journalist Ogola Florence Anyango is a trained reporter from the IWPR (Institute of War & Peace Reporting) where she has written key stories on Human Rights Situation, prostitution, torture and sexual children abuse in Uganda and other relevant stories in Africa. As the leading news agency reporting on international justice and human rights, IWPR makes an important contribution to the value and effectiveness of local judicial mechanisms as well as to international legal institutions such as the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Florence will arrive on the 04.10.2014 at Zürich Airport.
