Request for Proposals Consultancy Design and layout Voices of Survivors project

ECPAT International is a global network of organisations working together for the elimination of the sexual exploitation of children (SEC) in all its manifestations i.e. exploitation of children in prostitution, online child sexual exploitation, sale and trafficking of children for sexual purposes, sexอual exploitation of children in travel and tourism and some forms of child, early and forced marriage. The ECPAT Network currently consists of 122 members working at national and local levels in 104 countries. The Secretariat office of ECPAT International is based in Bangkok, Thailand.


In late 2020, ECPAT International entered into a partnership with the WePROTECT Global Alliance to conduct research that puts the voices of survivors of online child sexual exploitation at the forefront of the response to this problem. The project aims to directly engage with survivors to ensure their perspectives on solutions are clearly represented. These perspectives must ultimately also be translated into strategy, policy and action by policy makers, service providers and law enforcement. The project used best-practice methods, established by ECPAT International, to engage with victims and survivors of online child sexual exploitation, as well as with frontline workers currently supporting these young people. The project is being implemented in three countries in Latin America and three in Eastern Europe. The two main research activities under the project were: conversations with young survivors of online child sexual exploitation and abuse (7-10 per country) and a survey with up to 100 frontline workers in each country.

Findings from these activities are being compiled in a global report, national reports and briefing papers. Dissemination of reports and briefing papers targets a wide range of individuals and entities, including decision makers, the general public and the media.

For this purpose, ECPAT International is seeking to contract services for the development of the design and lay-out of the reports and briefing papers. With this Request for Proposals ECPAT aims to receive proposals from interested parties for carrying out the services of design and lay-out.
