Human Trafficking Awareness Campaign Continues in the Philippines

New advocates distributing and explaining the infographic materials

During the COVID-19 lockdown throughout the Philippines, our partner, Honor 1000 staff from the provinces of Bataan and Siquijor have continued house-to-house activities for the Human Trafficking Awareness Campaign – distributing infographic materials and communicating with parents and children the dangers of human trafficking and online sexual abuse and exploitation of children (OSAEC). Recently, 7 young adults from Siquijor, who have expressed desire to join the advocacy, have been trained.

Also just this quarter, this team of young advocates in Siquijor successfully conducted a Human Trafficking Awareness Campaign (HTAC) session, where 87 people took part. Health and safety precautions were followed and the teachers of the local public school, the police, and the local officials helped with the program. The head of the local police even served as a resource speaker, and imparted some information and knowledge they have on the issue.

The head of the local community was grateful that their area was chosen to hold the event. She said that this advocacy is very helpful in raising the residents’ awareness about the danger of human trafficking and OSAEC. We hope that with this knowledge, the parents will now be more vigilant and protective of their children.

Sometimes, all it takes is for someone to ask a child if they are safe. So she sat down with her and asked, “Are you ok?”.
