Shield of the Children currently operates in South-East Asia and Oceania to bring freedom to child sex trafficking victims and justice to the perpetrators. Shield does not operate anywhere where there aren’t sufficient repercussions for the perpetrators through legal channels, nor does it operate anywhere where there isn’t sufficient aftercare for the survivors of human trafficking.
Shield was established in 2018 after several years of on-the-ground research and experience. These experiences highlighted the dire need for a much more security-conscious approach to combating child sex trafficking. In line with this, Shield also trains and empowers anti-human trafficking NGOs whenever possible in order to better equip them to function safely in the face of organised crime.
Shield currently has active operations in South-East Asia.
