Anti-OSAEC Awareness Campaign to Protect Children with Special Needs

In one online awareness campaign, a teacher for children with special needs shared that she received a report from a neighbor that a child with special needs is being abused in her own home.

Unfortunately, children with special needs can be more prone to exploitation because they cannot speak up or defend themselves.

Preparation for Reintegration

The ultimate goal for survivors of human trafficking and online sexual abuse and exploitation of children (OSAEC) at The Blessed Project is for them to be reintegrated to the community, or if possible, to their families. The main challenges for this process to happen are the unpreparedness of relatives to accept and care for the trainees, unsuitable environment within the community, and the slow legal process for those with ongoing cases.
