ChildSafe in the Philippines – a Partnership for Protection!

ChildSafe has continued to raise awareness internationally, through partnerships in the Philippines we can continue to promote child protection and increase awareness. Estimates have put the number of child victims of sexual exploitation in the country at 100,000, many of whom are trafficked internally from rural areas to major urban areas. They often end up in high risk and abusive situations which can include prostitution and online sexual exploitation and are particularly open to exploitation by sex tourists.
