Teams of police, prosecutors, child welfare professionals and NGO experts from Lithuania, Norway, Poland and Sweden have made site visits in the four countries looking at the challenges facing law enforcement and child protection when it comes to protecting children suspected of being trafficked for exploitation in begging and/or in criminality.
The four site visits and the final roundtable meeting gave numerous opportunities to analyse obstacles for access to protection for child victims and difficulties in prosecuting the perpetrators.
30 teachers participated in two local supervisions which took place on 24th of May and 27th of September 2012 in Lithuania. The main objective was to discuss cases of children with emotional and behavioural difficulties as well as the methods of comunication and cooperation with parents in the field of upbringing children without violence.
Two local trainings titled „Teaching parents how to raise children without spanking" for 40 professionals (psychologists, pedagogues, phisisians and social workers) were carried out in Lithuania on 14st and 15st of November and on 19th and 20th of December 2012.
