15,000 OSEC Information Booklets Distributed

We are proud to announce that our field partner in the Philippines, Honor 1000, has completed our distribution of more than 15,000 OSEC information and activity booklets in partnership with Children International!

This means that 15,000 people have benefitted from our awareness campaign targeting Online Sexual Exploitation of Children (OSEC). As the Philippines is ranked as the country with the highest incidences of child online exploitation, it’s important that we continue to spread this important information.

OSEC booklet discussion

Children International Manila started the booklet distribution in May 2022. OSEC booklets were provided together with tablets and routers for our students to continue their online classes. The booklet is a helpful and important resource for children and youth.

As an initiative to help supplement the OSEC booklets, the staff was trained to deliver our protocol on the proper use of gadgets with an emphasis on safeguarding children.

We also conducted focused group discussions with some of the recipients. The mothers shared that they started asking their children about their activities online, while the younger children shared that they have been receiving inappropriate requests from online strangers such as asking for pictures or inviting to meet up. They learned from reading the booklet that they shouldn’t agree to such requests and instead share those experiences to trusted adults.

 

In partnership with HONOR 1000 Movement and Children International, Captivating will continue to explore ways on how we can work together to stop exploitation of children in the Philippines.
