Training on Online OSEC responders

Voice for Change

A response to the need to protect the children who find themselves locked up since March 15, 2020 to be able to report cases of abuse and to share their difficulties due to the Covid pandemic. And while the lockup measures are necessary to curb the spread of Covid 19 in the country, unfortunately, the corona lockdown enhances the vulnerability of children for online sexual abuse and exploitation. The activity will use the peer to peer approach due to the fact that children are most often comfortable in sharing or disclosing their problems with their peer group. It is lamenting to note that at this time of great uncertainty, news of children who were forced to perform sexual acts or do lewd scenes on camera by their own parents or by others are getting bigger share of the news apart from Covid -19 updates.
