Challenge

The sexual exploitation of children continues to expand exponentially worldwide- involving increasingly younger victims and more extreme violence. (NY Times, September 2019). This horror is especially prevalent in Southeast Asia, where perpetrators are orchestrating and watching abuse on live-streaming websites. (The Asean Post, May 2019). The HUG Project is in a unique position to effect change both on the ground and at the policy level in Thailand- to convict offenders and care for survivors.

Solution

HUG is reaching children, parents, teachers, and caregivers with prevention techniques- teaching them how to stop abuse before it begins. HUG is partnering with police and prosecutors to strengthen the justice system in Thailand by building their capacity to conduct effective investigations with a child victim-centric approach. HUG connects survivors and their families with shelter, medical care, counseling, educational support, and legal assistance throughout the judicial process and beyond.

Long-Term Impact

As an active member of the TICAC (Thailand Internet Crimes Against Children) task force, the TATIP (Thailand Anti-Trafficking In Persons) task force, and the CACT (Children's Advocacy Center Thailand) system, HUG has supported over 200 cases (including Child Pornography, Child Sexual Abuse, and Human Trafficking). Also, the HUG team has personally assisted over 100 survivors toward recovery. Because of the global nature of these crimes, the potential for impact is many thousands of children.
