Knowledge is Power. Never has this been more relevant for the child protection sector. Reflecting upon this edition’s theme, I am in awe of the incredible work our members do to empower our sector and broader community in the effort to combat online child sexual exploitation.
It gives me great pleasure to bring you the first edition of the ACCCE newsletter for 2021, which also happens to be my first as Commander ACCCE, Child Protection Operations and Human Trafficking.
We are off to an incredible start to the year and have already seen some significant achievements both within the ACCCE and broader child protection sector. The theme for this edition, ‘women in child protection’, will come as no surprise and is particularly relevant in light of International Women’s Day celebrated earlier this month.
Welcome to the final edition of the ACCCE newsletter for 2020. As the year draws to a close, we’re taking time to reflect on ‘our people’ which also happens to be the theme of this edition. It is only with the unwavering efforts and resolve of our people that we can rise together to fight against online child sexual exploitation.
