Stranger Danger

The Online Safety Campaign is conducted by Honor 1000 Movement in elementary public schools in the Philippines not only to raise awareness on human trafficking, but also to inform the students what immediate actions they could take should they experience malicious activities online.

In one of the sessions, one of the Grade 6 students shared that a foreigner chatted her online asking her to send him pictures of her naked in exchange for money. The student immediately blocked the stranger. Meanwhile, another female student shared that a foreigner kept on commenting on her photos which made her uncomfortable. The student also immediately blocked the stranger.

In our efforts to fight online sexual exploitation of children, we continue to hear stories like these from students as young as 11 years old. In Manila, where public schools are overpopulated and teachers are overworked, school officials are also aware of the problem, but are not able to respond as much as they want to due to limited resources and bandwidth. Our efforts to help them in this aspect is changing lives.

Wennie's Growing Businesses

Wennie joined the the Honor 1000 Microfinance project in 2017 because, being able to give her three small children a good education was important to her. She didn't want the temptation of trafficking and cyber crime to lure herself or her children as a way to earn money. She knew she was not financially stable enough and worried what the future would be for her children. A microloan from the Honor 1000 Microfinance project was just what she needed.
