As a travel agency employee, you are in regular contact with customers who book travel arrangements. For many destinations, the number of illicit requests involving the sexual exploitation of children has increased. Please inform your customers in face-to-face conversations or by giving printed materials from terre des hommes or other organisations offering assistance. This will help promote our common efforts to combat the problem and support the rights of children.
In their work to protect children and prevent sexual exploitation, international children's help organisations have learned that it is very important to support the public's sense of social responsibility and avoid inadvertent problems. It is especially important to offer information and make travellers aware, because they are the ones who can communicate their strict disapproval of sexual exploitation of children to other travellers. Every effort to eliminate illicit requests for underage boys or girls helps!
