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 >
In 1990, a group of people and organisations were concerned about the increase in travelling child sex offenders coming to Thailand to exploit children. As a response, they started ECPAT International to campaign against it.
Over 30 years, the campaign evolved into the biggest global civil society network solely dedicated to ending all forms of child sexual exploitation. Since then, we have made remarkable progress while gradually growing and now, ECPAT is present in over 100 countries worldwide.Read more >
