2. Background of the project

Online Child Sexual Exploitation (OCSE) includes “all acts of a sexually exploitative nature carried out against a child that have, at some stage, a connection to the online environment”. OCSE and other forms of child exploitation are interwoven and often occur together. The goal of this project is to contribute to the reduction of online facilitated forms of sexual exploitation of children at national levels in Cambodia, Kenya, Nepal and The Philippines and internationally.

OCSE has surged globally in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. Of law enforcement officials surveyed in 39 countries, 68% reported an increase in OCSE as a result of school closures and lockdowns (NetClean, 2021, and Economist Impact and WeProtect Global Alliance, 2022). In a global survey, 54% of young people reported having experienced online sexual harms before they were 18 years old. Another multinational survey reported an increase in online grooming, sexual extortion, live-streamed CSAM and self-generated CSAM (Interpol, 2022).

In this project, TdH NL will collaborate with six local partners to address OCSE in four diverse countries that are undergoing rapid changes in their social, economic and demographic development. Various studies indicate the prevalence of OCSE to be high:

  • In Nepal 13% children (18.58% boys and 6.88% girls) experienced live streaming of sexual abuse and exploitation, indicating that many more children are likely to have been groomed and experienced other forms of OCSE. (ChildSafeNet and ECPAT Luxembourg, 2020)
  • In the Philippines, 1 in 5 children are victims of different forms of sexual abuse and exploitation. (UNICEF, 2016)
  • In Cambodia, 60% of child respondents sampled shared examples of OCSE (Terre des Hommes Netherlands and Royal Government of Cambodia, 2019)
  • In Kenya, programme evaluations have reported that up to 40% of children surveyed had experienced SEC. TdH (2018)

The Safety for Children and their Rights OnLine programme, or SCROL programme, was co-designed by TdH NL country teams and local partner organisations in 2022. The voices of children in the four countries of implementation also informed the design. SCROL aims to create a safe environment for children by addressing the following elements: poor access to safe reporting mechanisms and adequate referrals, low capacity of law enforcement agencies, lack of delivery by the duty bearers, inadequate knowledge and responses at the community levels and a negligent private sector.

3.Objectives for baseline evaluation
