Program that promotes meetings with teachers with the aim of enabling these professionals to identify cases of sexual exploitation of children and adolescents, and guide them to act in an integrated manner with the protective network in dealing with the problem. Instituto Liberta believes in awareness and articulation as fundamental strategies for finding solutions.

At the end of the meetings, Instituto Liberta launched a challenge for state education professionals in São Paulo: to develop projects that denounce sexual violence. The projects evaluated with the greatest potential for transformation were chosen to be presented at Columbia University (NY), Institute's partner. In New York, teachers had the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and learn about inspiring experiences.

After six months of the conversation circles, there was a 300% increase in the record of school occurrences of sexual violence in the education department system.


Workshop program dedicated to high school youth. Students are invited to participate in an immersion in the issue of sexual violence and exploitation and, at the end of the process, create and implement an awareness campaign to impact their communities.

Over the course of a semester, students were encouraged to reflect on the roots of gender and violence against children and adolescents, to learn about the scenario of sexual exploitation in Brazil, the existing public policies, in addition to identifying the protection networks in their territory and to understand what their neighbors, family, colleagues and teachers know about the subject. After this deepening and understanding of the scenario, the content is the basis for the creation of communication projects, dedicated both to awareness and to alerting and the need to ask for help in cases of sexual violence.




Instituto Liberta was born at the end of 2016 from the desire of a philanthropist: Elie Horn, as a member of Giving Pledge, tooked on the commitment to donate part of his personal assets to social causes and chose as a major mission to combat the sexual exploitation of children and adolescents in Brazil. Liberta's mission is to combat the sexual exploitation of children and adolescents in Brazil in all its forms.


The sexual exploitation of children and adolescents is not a problem in Brazil, it is, unfortunately, a global issue, as shown by a study recently carried out by international organizations committed to the subject and which resulted in a reference report, The Global Study Report on Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism, which addresses the issue of sex tourism. In Brazil, the sexual exploitation of children and adolescents has frightening numbers. In the same way, society's ignorance is frightening and, when we are not faced with ignorance, we face precisely the naturalization of the situation. We are talking about thousands of girls and boys who are subjected to an unworthy life, which will bring almost insurmountable traumatic consequences. Given this situation, we understand that the role of the government and civil society goes in two directions: rescuing these girls and boys who are already in this situation and, above all, preventing others from entering. The aforementioned study points to the fact that one of the most important strategies for combating sexual exploitation is precisely social awareness. Only then will we be able to draw everyone's attention and also “denaturalize” this perverse and criminal behavior.


We are aware of the complexity of the issue and that, therefore, any proposal for confrontation is also of great breadth and complexity, involving several and different actors. We believe that the path to eradicate sexual exploitation of children and adolescents involves the following steps:

. Make people aware of the seriousness of the problem, denaturalizing this practice in part incorporated and socially accepted.
. Persuade society to denounce.
. Work with the improvement of the child and adolescent protection network.
. Work for the improvement of legislation on the subject.
. Make better the quality of information and data about the problem.
