Tour for children

A convoy of buses will roll out of Phnom Penh today to begin "The Tour'" a

weeklong trip around Cambodia to raise awareness and gather information about

child exploitation.

Around 70 participants from 30 NGOs will visit eight

provinces to share knowledge with officials, local project workers and children,

said organizers from the NGO coalition COSECAM.

The tour and a National

Conference on Child Exploitation to be held in Phnom Penh in the second week of

July will gather together ideas on fighting child exploitation and provide input

to Cambodia's next five-year National Plan of Action on the issue, set to be

renewed in 2005.
