You’ve advocated for the rescue, protection and restoration of the world’s most vulnerable people. You’ve invested in systemic change through the strengthening of justice systems. Now, it’s time for you to see the impact of your support.
You’re invited to join us on a trip to our field office in Cebu, Philippines, where you’ll get an inside look at how your support of IJM Canada has helped protect children in the Philippines from online sexual exploitation (OSEC).
Join IJM as we seek to learn from our field staff as they protect vulnerable people from violence daily, strengthen justice systems and work alongside police to rescue victims of injustice. This experience will enhance your knowledge of our programs and connect you with our work in a deep and meaningful way.
We are excited for you to see our work up close in the field.
Here’s what we hope to accomplish on this trip:
Educate yourself on the crucial work IJM Philippines is doing to eradicate the online sexual exploitation of children (OSEC).
Engage with the work and learn how justice systems can be used to protect people in poverty from violence.
Experience the beautiful, vibrant culture of the Philippines by interacting with the people and exploring the country.
Encourage and be encouraged by field staff and local partners as you get to know them and their hearts for ending OSEC in the Philippines.
