The Toolkit provides facilitators with easy-to-follow guidelines and tools to conduct Keeping children safe from abuse in tourism training with tourism sector stakeholders. The materials are adaptable for a broad range of participants working in both formal and informal economies and working at different levels – from front-line tourism staff to mid to senior levels of management, owners and operators, as well as officials from relevant government ministries and agencies. The training can be conducted as a one- day event or delivered as discrete modules over a period of time. Recognising the reality of business operations, it is also possible to present key messages in a short one or two hour session.
The Toolkit is presented in simple language to be accessible to the varied target audience. To fully benefit from the content, the facilitator should read the Toolkit well before the event and use it to help prepare for the training. Adaptations and additions can then be made to tailor the materials to each audience. An electronic copy of the Toolkit is accessible at http://www.childsafetourism.org and http://wvi.org/asiapacific/childsafetourism.
