Kapitbahay Sessions

Kapitbahay Sessions (“kapitbahay” is neighbor in English) is our most recent effort, through our field partner Honor 1000 Movement, to not only use the online platform in raising awareness about online sexual abuse and exploitation of children (OSAEC), but also to involve survivors’ voices in the fight against this crime.

Melvin Abundo, our Project Lead for Kapitbahay Sessions, was recently invited to participate in the National Council for Children’s Television’s (NCCT) press conference. NCCT promotes the production and broadcast of developmentally appropriate programs for children in the Philippines. The invitation came after Melvin presented the initial ideas for this newest project to one of the council members of NCCT.

This is a huge opportunity not only to expand the reach of the project, but to promote our advocacy to end OSAEC in the Philippines.

Help us continue the fight against human trafficking and online sexual abuse and exploitation of children. Click on the links below.

During her stay in the Blessed House, Mae (name changed for protection and privacy) was able to go to school. Though she was older than most of her classmates, she persevered and even finished a vocational course on cooking while also attending formal school.

Ofelia

Everyday, Ofelia sets out in the afternoon to sell boiled duck eggs, or more commonly known in the Philippines as "balut", together with other snacks to fill her neighbors. She does this diligently to provide for her four children, while her husband works as a construction worker.

Poverty remains to be one main factor of sexual exploitation in the Philippines. Thus, reaching poor communities and teaching them how to fight OSAEC are crucial in ensuring the safety of the children.
