On June 22nd, 2010 the GMDC hosted a seminar to mark Youth Day and to launch Gender Links new Human Trafficking Radio Programme. This took place at Let Us Grow in Orange Grove.

It has been widely discussed in recent months that children could be the most vulnerable demographic during the 2010 games. Schools in South Africa will be closed, and with little else to do, and with the fervor of the World Cup on their minds, youth will undoubtebly hit the stadiums, fan parks and streets. These are the very spaces that could put young people at risk of expolitation or abuse. Fan Parks, where alcohol will be served, will allow access to children.

This event   launched Gender Links radio spots on human trafficking and 2010. It is also known that young people comprise a large amount of persons trafficked. Therefore, it is essential that actions are taken to assure youth are protected during the World Cup.
