ECPAT Belgium is proud to announce the launch of its new website “I say STOP!” on November 6th in the presence of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, M. Didier Reynders.
More than a news platform, this website is to become a real tool to fight sexual exploitation of children. Among other things, it will allow Belgian travelers or tourism professionals working abroad to easily alert on sexual abuses of children that they could witness.
But this new tool will benefit from even more potential ! Five actions, like the five fingers of the “I say STOP !” hand are to be offered to anyone willing to act against violations of the rights of the child : I report, I intervene, I testify, I support and I relay.
“I say STOP !” will take over, with innovative form and content, the old website “Stop Child Prostitution” and is directly mentioned on the pioneering European alert platform www.reportchildsextourism.eu.
This website is an initiative of the STOP Group, composed of the Police, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Justice, the Tourist Industry Federation, the Belgian Carriers Federation, Plan Belgium, Child Focus, the Samilia Foundation and ECPAT Belgium. It has been developed by Now.be.
