With today’s posting I would like to introduce you to another organization in the fight for social justice.

ECPAT International (End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes) is a global network of organizations and individuals working together for the elimination of child prostitution, child pornography and the trafficking of children for sexual purposes. It seeks to encourage the world community to ensure that children everywhere enjoy their fundamental rights free and secure from all forms of commercial sexual exploitation.ECPAT works to build collaboration among local civil society actors and the broader child rights community to form a global social movement for protection of children from sexual exploitation.ECPAT groups are involved in implementation of various initiatives to protect children at local levels, while the Secretariat provides technical support and information, and holds workshops and other educational forums to extend and exchange knowledge among groups in different countries. It also represents and advocates on key issues at the international level on behalf of the network.

  1. I appreciate your posts and your choice of causes. I will visit EPCAT for more info and would urge you to check out ServantWorks/ The Well, run by some friends of mine which rescues Thai “bar girls” and trains them in jewelry making instead. Very effective ministry.
