On August 13-14, 2012, ECPAT Cambodia organized its 11th capacity building workshop on the protection of children from sexual exploitation in travel and tourism at Apsara Angkor Hotel and Resort in Siem Reap. Participants were 23 tourism professionals, ranging from Front Desk Managers, Human Resource Managers, to General Managers.

Since 2009, ECPAT Cambodia has provided training to 122 tourism companies (and 169 staff members) with the aim to encourage them to establish ethical policy to protect children from sexual exploitation in travel and tourism and report possible cases to authorities. In addition to the regular training, ECPAT Cambodia has provided training to the hotels that are interested in having their staff trained on child protection.
