Together, we are working to put a stop to cybersex child trafficking in the Philippines. With your help, we can head toward our goal of making this world a safer place.

Child Cybersex Trafficking…What is it?

The Philippine Islands are considered the child cybersex capital of the world. Two years is the average length of time children are used for cybersex and other online sexual exploitation. In those two years of abuse, children who are exposed to cybersex trafficking typically grow up to develop severe mental disorders, trust issues, and antisocial behaviors. The traffickers’ own mental instability leads them to look at the children as profit, and even refer to them as “producers” rather than children. These actions demolish any presence of a normal childhood, or normal life. We must work to put an end to childhood cybersex trafficking, and our effort begins today.
