Children like these are trafficked for sex – Children like these are being sexually exploited – Children like these had their childhoods stolen
Most importantly, children like these need your help.
The number of innocent and vulnerable boys and girls who each year fall prey to commercial and sexual exploitation around the world is frightening. It seems as though the numbers are so many that there is little that can be done. Many of us shrink away from the problem because we wonder if anything can be done. However, there is one organization that has taken a strong stand to address the root issues that destroy the lives of these children.
ECPAT-USA is standing at the forefront in pioneering systemic world-wide reform of not only laws but also in raising awareness of the issue and advocating for the many needy victims. ECPAT-USA is actively developing policy for private companies, law enforcement, and government bodies to fight the problem. The goal is simple – legislation that protects the victims and penalizes the traffickers and exploiters.
How successful has ECPAT-USA been? As the leading global network of organizations dedicated to stopping the commercial sexual exploitation of children, ECPAT received the 2013 Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize.
Please take one more look at the children above. Young people trapped in sex trafficking cannot ask for your help. ECPAT-USA is their voice and in hearing their pleas, you can make a difference in their lives. You can start by helping us help them. Your gift of $50, $100, $500, or more will protect boys and girls from exploitation. Please join our family and help make a difference.
On behalf of these children, thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
