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.
