Tuk-Tuk-Campaign in Sihanoukville, Cambodia

Tuk Tuks are widely used as a means of transport in Cambodia. Tuk Tuks are small carriages that are attached to the coupling of a moped. The carriages are padded, have a roof, and if it is raining, are equipped with plastic curtains that can stretch to protect riders from rain and moisture. The coach has enough space for 4 to 6 persons, but it is not rare that entire families can be found riding in one Tuk Tuk. The back of the coach has an area of 40x30 cm, which can be used for promotional purposes. ECPAT Cambodia (End Child Prostitution and Tourism) advertises their efforts against child sex tourism in this area of the coach. On their billboards, they highlight child protection services. Additionally, Tuk Tuk drivers attend training in workshops on how to prevent child sexual abuse at tourist destinations.

Le Donja has assumed the costs for training, equipment and advertising space of two Tuk Tuks and two drivers in Sihanoukville for one year. In 2012 we plan two more Tuk Tuks.
