IJM Philippines

Our Flagship Program

20 years of partnering with Philippine law enforcement and justice system officials

Together with Philippine authorities, we work to hold criminals accountable for exploiting children in order to deter other traffickers from abusing children in the first place. By doing so, we are building communities where all children can expect to be safe and protected.

In IJM’s previous project combating the commercial sex trafficking of minors, IJM helped achieve a remarkable 80% reduction in the availability of minors accessible for street- and establishment-based trafficking. The significant, measurable reductions in minors sold for sex prove that IJM’s theory of change is no longer just a theory, but is an effective multi-faceted, and replicable model aimed at complete system reformation that effectively reduces the threat of violence for those most vulnerable for victimization.

Implementing IJM’s model for community protection has the potential to significantly reduce the likelihood of vulnerable children ever being victimized in the first place.
