Learning to Adapt amidst the Pandemic

Despite their own challenges during this pandemic, our parent and youth advocates in the province of Siquijor (an identified at-risk area) continued to meet children to teach them on how to protect themselves against Online Sexual Abuse and Exploitation.

In Manila, after distributing Online Sexual Abuse and Exploitation of Children (OSEAC) information booklets, the team conducted random home visits to ensure that parents and kids are going through and understood the contents of the booklet. The team discussed the material with the children and/or the parents and talked about any questions or concerns they might have.

After one of the distributions among Grade 6 students in a public school, we received an update from the parents themselves sending photos of their children reading the information booklets. Meanwhile, in another school, the teachers included the OSAEC information booklets in the students’ required readings and encouraged parents to go through it with their children as well.

 

We are extremely grateful and proud of our advocates, educators, and parents who are eager and committed to protect children from exploitation.
