Stopping Cybersex Crime in the Philippines

With the start of the new academic year in the Philippines, our partner, Honor 1000 Movement have once again started the Stop Cybersex program in public schools. This is an important strategy to trafficking prevention. With the Philippines being first in the world for cybersex crime, this is a vital part of what we do.

The team recently met with the principal of a school to discuss and finalize the schedule of the sessions to be conducted. As the meeting was progressing, a visiting principal from another school came in and was introduced to the team. The newly introduced principal was keen to have the team conduct the Stop Cybersex program in their school as well. We are excited to see the word spreading about this invaluable program and the benefit it brings to students.

This advocacy to stop cybersex crime aims to reach at least 1,000 students every year. Thank you to those who have partnered with us to help protect vulnerable children in the Philippines.

Seeking Justice Against Perpetrator

Most victims of cybersex are young children who aren't even aware that they are being abused. The work that our partners do is crucial in coming alongside them in realizing they are being abused and that there is help. The Blessed Project exists to help rehabilitate young women and girls who have fallen prey to traffickers and the online world of cybersex.

Opening Up Possibilities for Women in the Philippines

The feeling of not being able to provide for her children was what drove Erlinda to start her own Sari-Sari Store (a small grocery store beside her home). She struggled to grow her business until she joined Honor 1000 Movement's Microfinance Project in 2012.

Restoration and Dignity

The annual average increase of prostituted children in the Philippines is 3,266 children per year. Tragically, the Philippines ranks fourth in the world in terms of countries with the highest number of prostituted children (humantrafficking.org Philippines). It’s effect on the innocence of impoverished children is heart-breaking.

Dedication to Protect Children

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.

Safe Place for Two Sisters

The mother of these sisters works as a prostitute in the Philippines. When their mother started working at night time, she would usually ask one of her male friends to watch her kids. That man started abusing both girls repeatedly. Because of this, the two girls would usually sneak out of their house at night time and walk around the city.
