Report from MECPATHS (Ireland)

May 1, 2018

Since our last report, the following developments have taken place at MECPATHS

Redesign of Logo (change of wording)

Old Logo: Mercy Efforts to Counter Child Prostitution and Trafficking in the Hospitality Sector.

New Logo: Mercy Efforts for Child Protection Against Trafficking with the Hospitality Sector.

Redesign of Training Materials: The old PowerPoint presentation was completely redesigned in keeping with our branding colours and consistent messaging (drawn up in partnership with and review by the Irish Hotels Federation). The content was updated according to the most recent figures from the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit within the Department of Justice and Equality. The presentation was made more concise while thoroughly giving an overview of Human Trafficking.

Contact with Hotels: Anne Griffin, Manager of the World Family of Meetings, agreed to share the contact details with MECPATHS of all the accommodation providers for the WMOF this August. Contact was made with each of the 38 accommodation providers with an introduction to MECPATHS and an offer of making a presentation to their staff.

  • Griffith College, 30 Degree students studying International Hospitality, on April 4th.
  • Shannon College of Hotel Management, Shannon, Co. Limerick, on April 9th, to over 200 students.

The Shannon College of Hotel Management have invited MECPATHS to facilitate five workshops with the Skills for Work life module in the next academic year (2018-19) with incoming first year students.
