Stronger Advocacy against OSAEC

As schools remain closed in the Philippines, our team in Siquijor (one of the identified high-risk communities) partners with local community leaders to gather children and teach them how to be safe online. The team was also invited by the local government to present plans for the distribution of OSAEC (online sexual abuse and exploitation of children) information booklet. The pandemic has made the occurrences of OSAEC worse with the loss of sources of livelihood and the surge of online activities.

In Manila, community leaders themselves joined in distributing the OSAEC information booklets in households.

 

 

An organization working in poor communities in the northern part of the Philippines also inquired about the OSAEC materials and was able to reach out to 330 families. Most of the families we are reaching out to are from impoverished situations, with access to the Internet, and are extremely vulnerable to cybersex trafficking.

The increased involvement of leaders and advocates in this fight against OSAEC and human trafficking encourages us to continue pushing forward.
