"Words" : a TV spot against the worldwide sexual exploitation of children


The international children’s aid organisation terre des hommes has produced a new spot against the sexual exploitation of children in tourism: „Words“.


As the first TV station in Germany, VIVA has been screening the spot since April 10 , 2003.

The spot is aimed at you, as a young target group, because one-fourth of all long-distance flights are bought by young people and young adults.
