Volunteer with STOP THE TRAFFIK at the Olympics!


Olympic fever is officially underway…

Up and down the country emails are flooding into inboxes delivering the exciting news: “You have been selected to be a torch-bearer during next year’s Olympic Games!”

Excitingly, STOP THE TRAFFIK’s trustee, Duncan Parker, is one of the deserving (and incredibly lucky) 8,000 who will carry the Olympic Flame. CONGRATULATIONS!

For those of you who sadly missed out on the opportunity to run through the streets with a burning  pole above your head,  never fear,  there is another way you can be part of the Olympics…

What is the GIFT box?

The GIFT box project will use the opporunity that the Olympic Games offers to raise awareness about human trafficking and to  inspire the Games’ thousands of visitors to take action.

The GIFT box is a public art installation that is exactly what it says on the tin; it’s  a HUGE box in the shape of a present. The boxes will be strategically placed in and around London and the Olympic sites next summer.

Members of the public will be able to go inside the GIFT box and will be enticed to do so by invitations on the outside of the box (this represents the way in which victims of trafficking are often deceived and tricked into exploitative situations). Once inside the box, visitors will learn about the harsh reality of human trafficking and read some real cases studies.

The GIFT box will empower people to become advocates for change to end trafficking in their own local communities.

How can you get involved?

STOP THE TRAFFIK are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help at a GIFT box during the Olympics. Your role would be to interact and engage with the public, to explain what the GIFT box project is all about and to encourage visitors to take action after their visit.

This is a great opportunity to be a part of the buzz of the Olympic Games whilst also doing some invaluable anti-trafficking campaiging.

    I wish that I could volunteer for this, but I think I’m a bit too late… Anyway, I will only be 14 at the time of the Olympics, but I’d really like to get involved!
