TOGETHER FOR A JUST WORLD

Philippines

About 4 million children in the Philippines work, more than half under exploitative and dangerous conditions. Child labor is closely linked to child trafficking and child prostitution.

An estimated 100,000 children are forced to work in prostitution and sex tourism. Together with local partner organisations, AWO International works for the rights and protection of children.
