The ECPAT Foundation began as a pilot project of ECPAT International that
focused on the sexual exploitation of children situated in the North of Thailand. It was registered as a local non-governmental organisation in 1999. The vision of the ECPAT Foundation is the realisation of the rights of all children to live free from exploitation and abuse. ECPAT Foundation’s mission is to promote collaboration and engagement with key stakeholders from government, civil society organisations and the private sector to protect children.
The ECPAT Foundation advocates the implementation and monitoring of the Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) and its protocols and engages with networks of human rights and child protection agencies at a national and local level. The foundation supports children and young people who have survived exploitation or are still at risk by encouraging them to participate as key actors to protect themselves and other children in similar situations. The ECPAT Foundation also works to promote the “Child Safe Organisations” framework to local child NGOs and government-run shelters to aid in the development of child protection policy and procedures as well as “the Code of Conduct on Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism”.
