Child trafficking in your own back yard?

Did you know that Child Trafficking is a major problem in the Philippines even today? According to DSWD records they have assisted approximately 596 children, 188 boys and 408 girls, who were victims of trafficking last year. These children were subjected to anything from prostitution and pedophilia to pornography and child labor. Unicef has stated that the Philippines has the highest incidence of child prostitution in a tourist oriented destination. Is this the worldwide recognition that we want?

Children should be protected. They represent the future of any nation. How they are treated today will determine what kind of adults they will become. This in fact is how the cycle of abuse continues because these children who are trafficked and abused mentally and physically today, many times, become the abusers of tomorrow.

Ask yourself what you can do to help and actually take the next step into making a positive difference in the life a child’s tomorrow.


  1. You are really great father David. I really thank you for your love and concern to the children who are our future leaders someday. The Gentleman's Guide is a good site too. For me, I can help make a difference on our children's lives by monitoring their activities in life. We must show love and concern to them so they will be away of those horrible incidents.

  2. Hi Shyle. I am going to check out the "Gentleman's Guide" right after "dropping" today. Thanks for the tip and the compliment. You as a teacher are really in the forefront of our kids lives. I can remember many of my teachers that I credit for helping me become the man that I am today. Take care ;o)
