About the campaign
The Child Safe Tourism campaign arms travellers with knowledge and information on simple actions to protect children and young people from abuse in tourism areas. The Child Safe Tourism campaign is part of an Australian Government initiative, Project Childhood, which aims to combat the sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism in the Mekong sub-region. Project Childhood builds on Australia’s long-term support for programs that better protect children and prevent their abuse.
World Vision works with governments, the tourism industry and communities to prevent children from becoming victims of sexual exploitation by raising awareness, developing community resilience and building Child Safe Tourism. Through the use of public campaigns (including the Child Safe Tourism campaign), training and Child Helplines; governments, communities, and the tourism industry are better aware of the vulnerabilities of at-risk children to sexual exploitation in tourism and are equipped with tools to protect them.
