Industry: Tour Ops       

Worldwide Travel Group, LLC signs the Tourism Child-Protection Code of Conduct

(TRAVPR.COM) KENYA - April 16th, 2013 - Mombasa, Kenya – April 6th, 2013 During a small ceremony on Saturday morning Aurélie Sivadier, Executive Director of  Worldwide Travel Group, LLC became the 3rd tour operator and 14th American company to sign the Tourism Child-Protection Code of Conduct (the Code) and have committed to implementing the six guidelines against the commercial sexual exploitation of children.

The group launched E-Trip Africa in 2012, which organizes safaris and treks in Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, and Tanzania.  “We believe that the only way to do business is by following a strong set of principles and ethics.  East Africa is not very transparent and ethics are often set aside in favor of better returns.  But in today’s global society, consumers don’t want to have any part in this.  By providing an ethical and transparent option, we believe this will push the entire tourism sector in a more positive and sustainable direction,” explains Mathieu Lahalle, one of the groups directors.

“We quickly recognized that among all of the negative impacts of tourism, Child Sexual Exploitation is clearly the most harmful, having such a direct impact on our children.  We are proud to lead the way towards stomping out this unacceptable behavior,” said Aurélie just before signing the Code.

As a signatory of the Code, E-Trip Africa has created a policy against the sexual exploitation of children, will train staff on the issue, and educate customers.
