ECPAT - Ending the Sexual Exploitation of Children


ECPAT is a worldwide network of organizations working to end the sexual exploitation of children. We work at all levels, supporting shelters for survivors, training and supporting law enforcement, influencing governments and conducting a wide range of research. At the heart of all our work is every child’s right to live free from sexual exploitation and abuse. Children in all countries of the world are at risk of trafficking and prostitution, as well as online dangers such as grooming, sextortion and the proliferation of child sexual abuse images. In recent years, the travel and tourism sector has imperilled millions of children worldwide as travelling child sex offenders find new victims. To end these crimes, knowledge and evidence must be of the highest possible quality to inform decisions and guide action. ECPAT is conducting primary research, as well as bringing together information from various sectors and countries around the world, to form a reliable and professional range of academic sources.
