Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are. Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

The countdown begins. On Tuesday, April 15, ITMI certified tour director Barnaby Davies, will visit 7 European capitals in 24 hours, to break a Guinness Book record in support of ECPAT-USA.


San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) April 14, 2014

In 2013 Barnaby Davies, an experienced tour crew member who has worked with Beyonce, Madonna, Metallica and many other celebrities, became an ITMI certified tour director. During the course, he received human trafficking awareness training, which is part of the ITMI curriculum.

Learning about the horrific crime of human trafficking made quite an impact, states Barnaby. Now I want to give this issue some exposure by challenging journalist Sarah Warwicks Guinness Book record of six cities in 24 hours. Im also seeking to help raise money to support the important work of ECPAT-USA.

ECPAT-USA is the leading anti-trafficking policy organization in the US, and is part of an international network of organizations in over 70 countries, all collaborating to end the commercial sexual exploitation of children. ECPAT-USAs mission is to protect every childs basic human right to grow up free from the threat of sexual exploitation and trafficking, and to create a world in which no child is bought, sold, or used for sex.

The International Tour Management Institute (ITMI) is the premier training and certification program for tour directors and guides. ITMI is the only tourism school that has become a signatory to the ECPAT Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Exploitation in Travel and Tourism.

Make a pledge to champion Barnabys world record challenge and to support ECPAT:

http://www.crowdrise.com/breakingaworldrecord/fundraiser/ecpatusa. This will help fund ECPATs crusade to raise awareness that children are being commercially sexually exploited and trafficked; advocate for better laws to protect victims and change the policies that allow children to be exploited; train people in the travel industry to recognize the signs of trafficking; and to collaborate with ECPAT affiliates around the world to combat the issue of modern day slavery.

To satisfy Guinness officials, Barnaby must stop in each of the cities themselves, not just at a nearby airport, making this a difficult logistical challenge and a test of endurance.

Barnabys itinerary on April 15, 2014 is a follows:

Leaving London, UK St. Pancras rail station at 12:25pm;

Arriving Paris, France Nord rail station at 15:53;
