Child friendly version of the Global Study

Global Study on sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism (SECTT) reveals shocking discoveries. The world is getting smaller, travel is cheaper than ever and children are playing the price. With the click of a mouse one can book an affortable ticket to almost any destination around the world. Unfortunately, not all of these travellers have innocent intentions. Some are searching for opportunities to sexually exploit vulnerable children on their travels. This is a problem that has continued to grow over the past 20 years. Sexual exploitation of children is a growing illegal market that needs to be shutdown. Understanding a situation is the precursor to changing one. That is why we have made available the Global Study on SECTT for young people to be informed about how sexual exploitation and tourism are connected and what they can do to help. We hope that this publication will inspire a generation of youth to rise up and take a stand against child sexual exploitation.
