This new Guide aims to help religious communities worldwide harness their strengths to prevent, respond to and end online child sexual exploitation. Published by ECPAT and Religions for Peace and with support from UNICEF, “Protecting Children from Online Sexual Exploitation” recognises that religious leaders and communities can provide the moral compass that is needed to end this crime. 

The Guide sets out the online risks to children and the impact of their sexual exploitation, as well as the skewed motivations of offenders and their intermediaries, including traffickers and pimps. Outlining the critical role of religious communities in addressing this crime, the Guide notes their spiritual, moral and social influence, as well as their obligation to end violence against children.



Youth Voices for Change is an initiative of the Down To Zero Alliance that seeks to prevent the sexual exploitation of children and adolescents by amplifying the voices of young leaders for change in Latin America and Asia.
