The sexual exploitation of children is a reality that is still unknown, both to general public and to professionals. Yet it affects many children around the world, including Belgium. What are the different ways of the sexual exploitation of children? What are the consequences? What are the profiles of perpetrators and victims?

TRAINING FOR UNACCOMPANIED FOREIGN MINORS AND VICTIMS OF TRAFFICKING
ECPAT Belgium also provides trainings to audiences who are particularly vulnerable to the risks of sexual exploitation (whether first or re-exploitation).
Places where these minors are welcomed are often visited by ECPAT Belgium in order to train them on the right attitudes to have, to protect themselves and to react in case of risks, particularly on the Internet and through social networks.
These trainings are highly interactive and allow young people to learn by themselves, while having an approach adapted to their problems.
