We are all excited about 2010, World Cup Soccer, and great preparation has gone into accommodation, venues, entertainment, etc. We have high hopes that this event will put our country on the map.

However, there have been concerns that the organizers of the 2010 World Cup have not fully assessed the impact it will have on human traficking and on the streetchildren in particular. There will also be a relaxation of visa requirement for all SADEC countries and this could facilitate the movement of sexual predators onto our streets, as well as increase the likelihood of human trafficking. The school holidays will be extended over this period, which could also result in an increase in the number of 'part-time streetkids', making them extremely vulnerable targets.

We are currently developing strategies to keep children occupied over this time and to keep them off the streets. If you have any suggestions we would love to hear them.
