The Story Of Affia DVD

AffiaAudience: practitioners who work with children who may be victims of trafficking

The ECPAT UK Youth Programme was awarded funding from Media Box to make a film about the UK response to child victims of trafficking. The film was created, filmed and edited by the ECPAT UK Youth Group. The Story Of Affia is based on real life experiences of the ECPAT UK Youth Group.

Affia is a girl from West Africa who is trafficked to the UK for domestic servitude and sexual exploitation. She is then ‘rescued’ by authorities and meets professionals who try and help her. The film highlights some of the challenges child victims of trafficking face living in the UK. Viewers will gain a greater understanding of the needs of child victims of trafficking by hearing the experiences, views and opinions of children who have been trafficked.
