INHOPE attended the Tanzania Round Table Discussion on Online Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse supported by the Fund to End Violence Against Children and organised by the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC), Child Helpline International and the Tanzanian national child helpline C-sema.
Representatives from the Child Development department at the Tanzanian Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children; the Cyber Crime Unit from the Tanzania Police Force, the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Tanzania Internet Service Providers Association, UNICEF Tanzania and the British High Commission are engaging in discussion on online child sexual abuse and exploitation and their ways to combat this in Tanzania.
Key takeaways: education of parents and engaging with children from the most rural communities; national responses needed and investing in the technological development of the national law enforcement actors.
