To make children and youth safe
As the demand for experiential travel and social, cultural, and community-based tourism grows, so do the risk factors for children as well as potential risks for your staff and reputation. Children deserve and need the power of the tourism industry and associated businesses to adopt approaches that not only recognize their vulnerability but also seek to mitigate risks to them. Most of the time these risks are solely linked to possible sexual exploitation and/or abuse, but there are other harm factors that the industry needs to work to address.
AS TRAVELERS OFTEN DO NOT KNOW HOW TO REACT TO SITUATIONS INVOLVING CHILDREN DURING THEIR TRAVELS,
WE SHOW THEM WHAT TO DO
Millions of children are pushed onto the margins of society or are facing many forms of abuse around the world. Unfortunately, many people don’t know how to react to these situations and can feel disempowered when they face them, or even worse, they can adopt behaviors that are harmful to children without even knowing it. These are among the reasons why the ChildSafe Movement has been created, to provide everyone with the tools to protect children in their daily environment. ChildSafe provides the highest standards of protection to children and youth by delivering concrete measures and advice to individuals, businesses, governmental and non-governmental organizations. The Movement has developed creative and innovative programs, undertaking vigorous awareness-raising activities and encouraging behavioral change with one objective in mind: to make children and youth safe.
Child Protection starts making children around us safer. Everyone can take action at home & in their own community!
