Children working and living in tourist areas are especially vulnerable to physical, emotional and sexual abuse. When your school travels we encourage your students and staff to take the following actions that have been put forward by World Vision in order to help create a safer tourism environment for children.
Spread the word about child safe tourism. Share this information with your friends and family while you travel and when you return home.
View World Vision’s ‘Be A Child Safe Traveller’ and visit childsafetourism.org for more information on how you can protect vulnerable children.
Modelled after World Vision’s ‘Child Protection and Trafficking Best Practice’ protocol, our Child Protection Code of Conduct is in place for itineraries where adult travellers are volunteering at a school for more than 24 hours.
