"I am Priceless"

____________________10 October 2012___________________

 Nigeria for Freedom!


"The Government of Nigeria, jointly with UNODC and the European Union, has launched a nationwide three-year anti-human trafficking campaign. Entitled "I am Priceless", the campaign is aimed at raising awareness about the reality, dangers and possible impact of irregular migration, as a consequence of either being smuggled or being a victim of trafficking in persons.

UNODC also appointed two Nigerian celebrities, Joke Silva and Jude Abaga, as Goodwill Ambassadors to spearhead activities connected to the campaign, particularly among the young and vulnerable.

Based on the 2009 UNODC assesment:
Annual Inflow: 3,800 - 5,700 women
Value: $152 million - $228 million annually
Estimated:West African trafficking victims comprise ~10% of forced sex workers in Western Europe

The "I am Priceless" campaign also supports the Blue Heart Campaign against Human Trafficking of UNODC. The launch included a "Blue Heart" fashion show and the unveiling of a customized Blue Heart fabric, Ankara, whose design features the blue heart, the international symbol that represents the sadness of those who are trafficked and the cold-heartedness of those who buy and sell fellow human beings. The fabric will be used in awareness-raising and prevention activities.

The slogan of the "I am Priceless" campaign is designed to communicate a sense of the value, self-worth and dignity of each and every human life and to instil a sense of empowerment to counter negative messages that trafficking victims or potential victims have experienced since childhood or following a trafficking experience."
