The Fight Against OSAEC Continues Through Awareness Trainings

More and more people are taking notice of the actions we are taking against Online Sexual Abuse or Exploitation of Children (OSAEC) in the Philippines. The local leaders of Loyola Heights, one of the known neighborhoods in Manila, invited our team to conduct OSAEC awareness training for mothers from other slum areas in the community.

One volunteer from Australia, Nina, and two university students also joined us in our training. Nina shared her personal motivation for volunteering in the Philippines. ⁤⁤She and her husband, Sam, were disturbed by the grim reality that Australia is a significant consumer of materials related to OSAEC and felt compelled to take action.  Koko, one of the university students who chose OSAEC as the topic for their final paper, shared that the most striking about the seminar is learning that parents are most often the perpetrators in OSAEC cases. Learning more about this heinous crime, she is more determined to have their university involved in raising awareness against OSAEC.

Anti-OSAEC Training for Parents

Nina, on the other hand, shared that she was amazed how the parents were so engaged the whole time, listening and participating in the discussion. Although the majority of the discussion was in Filipino, Nina realized that this was a deeply relevant topic for the community just by observing the parents’ faces.

⁤The recent OSAEC awareness campaign showcased a powerful coalition of government leaders, non-profit organizations, university youth representatives, and concerned citizens from around the globe. ⁤⁤Together, they united to condemn the exploitation of children and emphatically advocate for their protection. ⁤

⁤This collaborative effort underscores the urgent need for collective action against OSAEC and serves as a beacon of hope in the fight to safeguard the innocence and dignity of every child. ⁤


2024 will see Captivating fund education and awareness programs reaching 30,000 women and students in locations considered significantly at risk of cybersex crime and human trafficking.
