Dedication to Protect Children

A UNICEF study revealed that 8 in 10 Filipino children and adolescents are in danger of being bullied or being sexually abused online. The Philippines has become known as a top global source of materials on child sexual abuse. More than 20,000 child pornographic images are uploaded to the internet every week*.
Ms. Ailyn is a guidance counselor at a public elementary school in the Philippines. She explains that for some students, home life is difficult with domestic fights, single parent homes, and low socioeconomic living. Some students often get involved in fights or turn to social media as a coping mechanism to escape the problems at home. This puts them at high risk of getting involved in cyber crimes. Ms. Ailyn is a huge advocate for the school-based Online Safety Education program run by Honor 1000 Movement. Together, we are reaching out to schools and communities, helping to protect vulnerable children by bringing education and awareness.

Our 2019/2020 project plan is to reach students in two of the known trafficking hotspots in the Philippines and expand throughout other regions as the year continues. In total, we aim to reach 7,800 students. We continue to hear stories about exploitation and abuse from students. We cannot and will not stop this fight to protect children from cybersex crimes.
