As a general rule, children should never chat to strangers online,” says Mr Nguyen Khanh Hoi, National Coordinator of Project Childhood Prevention Pillar of World Vision Vietnam.
The report indicates that the internet was also used by sex offenders to de-sensitise children to acts of abuse.
Vietnamese parents even were unable to clearly verbalise behaviours or identify examples of child sexual abuse.
What’s more, children’s risk related to accessing the internet was highlighted.
We also cannot impose or prohibit children from their desire of exploring the world by using internet and technology.
The project worked in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Vietnam and took a dual prevention and protection approach.
World Vision took a child safe tourism approach in working with governments and communities to prevent children from becoming victims of sexual exploitation in travel and tourism.
