Ever since 2007, Stairway Foundation has been doing its Online Safety session in order to address the rising trend of child sexual abuse being perpetrated through the use of the Internet and other communication technologies. One of the main difficulties being encountered in the Online Safety sessions was the aspect of reporting.
To address the issue of rising online abuse of children in the Philippines, the Philippine National Police initiated AngelNet, a policee task force, to handle online abuses against children. Stairway Foundation has partnered with Project AngelNet and in line with this, we conducted an Online Safety training for AngelNet staff. Later in November, Stairway will host a strategic planning session for the organization.
