Child Safe Tourism

If you see or suspect child abuse while travelling, report it immediately

Why is this an issue?

Children rely on adults to keep them safe from abuse. No matter where we are in the world, we each have a responsibility towards ensuring that all children are free from physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

So what can I do?

If you see a situation where you think a child is being abused or at risk of abuse (physical, emotional or sexual), report it immediately to someone who can take action to protect the child. Contact the organisations below.
