The Child Protection Partnership (CPP) began as a 3-year program (2008-2011) aimed at reducing child sexual exploitation enabled by information and communication technology (ICT), with $2.6 million CAD provided by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). CPP is implemented in 2 countries, Thailand and Brazil.
CPP’s international Global Reference Group (GRG) provides guidance, expertise and networks to support CPP, comprised of 6 international partners from 6 different sectors.
In less than 3 years, CPP has built an international, multi-sector collaboration of 78 institutional partners including government ministries, non-governmental organizations, private sector companies, law enforcement agencies, communities and children.
To date, CPP has directly worked with 429 children through its Circle of Rights process in Brazil and Thailand. Indirectly, CPP has positively influenced more than 117,000 children who benefit from programs run through CPP partner organizations that now include ICT safety. Through trainings, working groups, study tours, partner activities, curricula and ICT game development, CPP has indirectly and positively influenced over 100,000 law enforcement personnel; and, over 2 million teachers, parents and other adults.
By leading with children and encouraging good practices, CPP demonstrates the effectiveness of strong partnerships and how ICT awareness, education and safety can build a child’s dignity, belonging and justice.
