With the support of Buffalo Tours, acclaimed social enterprise Friends-International are delighted to announce the launch of the ChildSafe Movement in Bali. Together with Yayasan Teman Baik, their local Indonesian program helping marginalized children, youth and their families, the ChildSafe Movement raises awareness of child protection among all tourism industry stakeholders, including promoting tourist behaviors and actions that will prevent risk to children and effectively protect them. ChildSafe activities will include international media and grassroots campaigning, educating tourists, as well as training and certifying businesses.

The result is a unique local and international network empowered to stand up against the exploitation of vulnerable children in the tourism industry.

Large-scale awareness raising campaigns and initiatives increase the global response to child rights violations and further protect children from harm. These campaigns, including “Children Are Not Tourist Attractions”, aimed at addressing the alarming growth of orphanage and school tourism, have already reached millions of individuals across the world and are supported and promoted by UNICEF and the United
Nations World Tourism Organization.

Through following ChildSafe Certification process, Buffalo Tours are at the forefront of the growing international recognition of the importance of implementing child protection within the tourism industry. Buffalo Tours have offered their assistance in the form of facilities and logistic support, to help ChildSafe implement their campaign in Bali. They have also mobilized their staff, Destination Ambassadors and suppliers to further enhance their commitment to child protection.
