Our Response to online threats

Children are vulnerable to online sexual exploitation and abuse.

With the growth of modern digital technologies, the vulnerability of children is sadly increasing. We’ve partnered with tech industries and global hotlines to disrupt the harm of online sexual exploitation and abuse to children in Cambodia.


Children received unwanted request for their sexual photos and videos.


Children had their sexual images shared with others without permission.

Children Need Protection Online.

We take up urgent steps to stop the victimisation of children from online sexual exploitation and abuse and promote a better and safer internet for children.

APLE delivers awareness raising, training and resources to children, parents, caregivers, communities, professionals, on internet safety and how to keep safe online.    

APLE provides a safe platform for the public to report child sexual abuse material (CSAM), which enables for the content to be removed through the INHOPE Notice and Takedown process and/or cases to be investigated.

Digital technologies provide many benefits, but sadly it can also be used by criminals to exploit children or facilitate human trafficking. We need to be aware of the risk, cautious of our use and keep safe from being deceived.

        Children and young people should be encouraged to embrace digital technology, and we, as adults, need to ensure they are protected, empowered, and respected online. Through this safer internet day campaign, we hope that online safety conversations will begin to spread more widely in families, schools, communities and governments.
