Building on the successful approach with the virtual girl Sweetie, Terre des Hommes, supported by international specialists, is developing an advanced method to counter the problem of worldwide webcam child sex.
The official estimate is that at any time of the day, over 750,000 men worldwide are looking for online sex with children in more than 40,000 public chat rooms. It was followed by a global outrage which persuaded the United Nations to put the subject high on its agenda.
Still, millions of potential perpetrators consider themselves undetected.
It is still too easy to approach children for sex through the internet.
The 'Sweetie' research, carried out at the end of 2013, showed the extent and nature of webcam child sex tourism worldwide. In the Philippines, children were rescued from internet dens.
However, this is not enough to put this phenomenon to a quick stop, says Terre des Hommes.
At the same time, we carry out extensive research into the impact of this preventive approach.
