NGO Partners Luxembourg
ECPAT – or End Child Prostitution and Trafficking – was founded in 1996 with the aim of combating the commercial exploitation of minors. ECPAT has played a decisive role in getting a detestable phenomenon put on the agenda. These are problems which many politicians and decision-makers underestimated for years.
Today, however, we know the true picture and it’s frightening. The sexual exploitation of minors is a major industry and this what ECPAT is working to combat.
ECPAT Luxembourg is composed of a small number of committed individuals who pool their expertise and professional influence in the interest of combating the commercial sexual exploitation of children. As Luxemburg is a very small country, and the government already fulfils its commitments under the Stockholm Agenda for Action, the group has concentrated its work on the campaign against child sex tourism, and on supporting the work of child focused NGOs who have shown a commitment to eliminating CSEC.
