7 yearsis the average life expectancy of a child after being coerced and exploited into sex work

2 millionchildren are exploited every year in the global commercial sex trade

48 hoursis the average time it takes for a runaway child to be approached by a sex trafficker

We work for a world that no longer tolerates the sexual exploitation of children.

ECPAT Child Alert acts to uphold the fundamental rights for children in Aotearoa new Zealand to be free from all forms of commercial sexual exploitation. We lead and participate in national and international activities that identify, prevent and address commercial sexual exploitation of children. This includes addressing issues around domestic and international trafficking of children for sexual purposes, online sexual abuse material and underage sex work.

ECPAT’s earlier focus on public awareness-raising, law reform and advocacy has expanded to include online safety initiatives, specialist training, research and community education. Through legal submissions, media releases, interviews and public debate, ECPAT Child Alert has ensured that CSEC issues are addressed in law reform. 

You can help prevent this.
