CHILD EXPLOITATION

Internet Safety for Children

Exploitation of children is a violation of their innocence and basic rights. Exploitation comes in many forms. Protect Student Health Georgia believes children should be free to grow up in the secure environment of loving families and communities. We will continue to educate, inform and unite people in action to protect children from those who seek to abuse, violate or use them for their own personal interests.
