The project aims to strengthen the Movement against CSEC in Paraguay with the participation of different stakeholders (State and other NGO's); CSOs working directly on exploitation/trafficking and other state institutions responsible for ensuring compliance with the rights of NNAs in a situation of CSEC. The project will work mainly in Asuncion, capital of Paraguay and in the city of Coronel Oviedo.

The sexual exploitation problem confronts us with a hierarchical social order based in the sexism, adultcentrism, discrimination and social exclusion, in which the children lose the right to control and determine their life conditions. This problem affects fundamental human rights. Sexual exploitation of minors is inexorably linked to the world of sex trade in adults, where children become the weakest link in a destructive chain of violence, control, crime and abuse.

The project aims to strengthen the Movement against CSEC in Paraguay with the participation of different stakeholders (State and other NGO's); CSOs working directly on exploitation/trafficking and other state institutions responsible for ensuring compliance with the rights of NNAs in a situation of CSEC.

The project will work mainly in Asuncion, capital of Paraguay and in the city of Coronel Oviedo coordinating actions with 20 CSOs nationwide and about 10 institutions at the regional level.

The Movement will promote advocacy, enforcement and mobilization actions against sexual violence with emphasis on CSEC, from the spaces of the Interagency Committee against CSEC, along with discussion tables of civil society. It aims to influence the comprehensibility of the stage by the CSO providing them with tools, analysing problems and performing management of public budgets.

Finally, the project will strengthen the service of care for girls and adolescent victims of CSEC or at risk of Banados de Tacumba.
