Sexual exploitation of children in residential care is on the rise and it is increasingly at the hands of foreigners and volunteers.
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.What we do >
