Arpan is happy to share that we are now a part of the WePROTECT Global Alliance, an international alliance that brings together the knowledge, experience and influence to transform the global response to child sexual exploitation and abuse online. The Alliance and its members share frameworks, tools, experience and effective practices to accelerate the response to this ever-evolving threat.
Speaking about Arpan joining the alliance, Iain Drennan, Executive Director of WePROTECT Global Alliance said,
“We are delighted to welcome Arpan as the latest civil society member of WePROTECT Global Alliance. We look forward to working with Arpan and the rest of our diverse membership to highlight and share good practice in tackling child sexual exploitation and abuse online, and to deepen our engagement and activities in India in particular.
We are clear that government and law enforcement cannot tackle this crime without widespread support and engagement. It is only through working as a broad coalition with the private sector and civil society that we can ensure all children are safe from sexual exploitation and abuse online. “
Pooja Taparia, Founder and CEO of Arpan said “We are really glad to be a part of this collective to address child sexual exploitation and abuse online. As the world has gone increasingly digital, there is an alarming increase in CSAM and other forms of Online Child Sexual Abuse the world over. An alliance like this enables the exchange of Global best practices, experiences and information and helps everyone work together towards a World Free from Child Sexual Abuse.”
