Project title: Prevention of ID theft: Capacity Building in Non – formal education
Duration: 1st September, 2014 – 31st March, 2015
The overall objective of the project – to equip NGO with knowledge and skills on prevention and help for the victims of ID theft by exchange of experience, transfer of know-how, creating long-term cooperation of NGO from Denmark, Lithuania, Belarus and jointly developing non-formal education tools.
The ID theft has been increasing over the last few years, which is common to EU and third countries, in particular Denmark, Lithuania and Belarus. Very often ID theft becomes an object of organized crime. The researches show that population is concerned about the ID theft, 66% in LT, 62% in BY, 39% in DK.
NGO having very high confidence between members of society have no capacities and tools to provide education and information, lack cooperation and exchange of experience.
The project will fill the gaps in cooperation between NGO, lack of capacities in the areas of prevention of ID theft and help to the victims, also solve shortage of education tools. The project foresees to share experience by organizing study visit and international conference, joint creation of innovative education tools (animated comic strip, online help center, online quiz, etc.) and implementation of information campaigns for the members of society.
The project will have positive impact on knowledge and skills of NGO in the area of ID theft, create long term cooperation, transfer know how, enhance awareness of society on threats of ID theft and where to turn if the problems arise. The project also contributes to the economic and social welfare of society as whole.
