Choose hotels, tour companies and businesses that implement child protection standards
Why is it important?
Children in tourist areas are especially vulnerable to physical, emotional and sexual abuse. The tourism industry has enormous power and potential to help make it safer for children.
So what can I do instead?
Every dollar you spend influences the world around you; so use your consumer power wisely. Support businesses that are taking positive action to protect child rights and support local communities to create a sustainable future. Choose hotels and businesses that implement child protection standards and encourage other businesses to do so. If you see a child being exploited in any business or service you are patronising, speak up and take your business elsewhere. The tourism industry caters to your demands.
