What do we do?
During its first month working as a hotline against child pornography on Internet, PROTEGELES received 529 reports on web pages with child pornography on them (October 2001). A year later, it received more that 900 and in July 2004, it reached 1.915 reports.
- Our Studies
PROTEGELES work is not only about locating child pornography web pages, reporting its existence to the police and so on, it is also about prevention. PROTEGELES carries out detailed studies: to identify as soon as possible the new risks that children may be running when surfing the net.
PROTEGELES is a pragmatic organisation not only focused on social awareness and reporting of illegal contents; we also do launch campaigns and elaborate specific education materials for children.All our objectives as a Child Welfare association as well as all our studies result in a preventive campaign.
