ECPAT is the leading global source of data and information on child exploitation. Our research helps us stay engaged, active and responsive to the current issues affecting the well-being of children around the world.
By engaging in multi-country collaborations and in working with law enforcement, private sector organisations, and governments around the world, we provide valuable information to help prevent future sexual crimes against children.
ECPAT is focused on raising the global consciousness of the fight against the sexual exploitation of children. We believe in holding governments accountable for implementing and enforcing laws to protect children.
We are an international organization with 121 partner members in 104 countries collectively working to end the prostitution and trafficking of children.
If you have witnessed a crime being committed against a child, your first priority (where possible) should be to contact the local police.
