The project “Challenging Gender Roles for Prevention of Trafficking” managed by the Åland Island Peace Institute in Finland and Resource Center for Women Marta in Latvia, is now entering in its final year and can account for 48 trained leaders and 21 new girl and boy groups in Åland and Latvia. In total, over 100 youngsters are involved in group activities. We can also present a new project manager, a new project economist and two new Steering Group members.
On 17th of January the Peace Institute invited Ålandic medias to talk about how the project was progressing. The press conference resulted in an article in the newspaper Ålandstidningen, an interview in Ålands radio and that week the project manager, Jenny Jonstoij, was interviewed in the TV channel Åland 24.
