Sexual Exploitation of Children
The focus of WOCON's work on the frontline has been to lift the veil of ignorance, to educate, retrain,improve living conditions and eliminate the causes of poverty that make children particularly vulnerable to exploitation.
The prevention of child exploitation has become the cornerstone of WOCON's support in the region to combat sexual exploitation. It aims to help families and communities become the first line of protection for children. Prevention programmes are designed to educate families and the girls about the dangers of trafficking and prostitution and to provide girls with life skills and job training.

As we witness the ever-changing world, technology provides more tools but also presents new risks. Ever wondered the activities and behaviours of our young kids in the digitally advanced age? Ever imagined the increased vulnerability in the ever-evolving world?
With the above brought to light, new forms of abuse are emerging and with them the need for new and accurate information on how to create awareness on the dangers of child exploitation.
