Equitable Tourism Options – EQUATIONS, with the support of ECPAT International, organised (25 June) the launch of the new e-learning materials for The Code to support the Travel & Tourism industry in preventing the sexual exploitation of children. The new e-learnings of The Code are available in Hindi and nine other languages.
The Code www.thecode.org works with companies, governments, and NGOs to guide and support the private sector to protect children in travel and tourism around the world. Sexual offenders take advantage of the tourism sector to perpetrate their crimes. The tourism industry is not itself a cause of the sexual exploitation of children, but they have a key role to play in conjunction with other stakeholders to protect children.
